Odds and Ends
You can’t fix stupid. Seriously. O’Reilly is Irish. And as Paddys Lamentation points out, it wasn’t all that for the Irish back in the day.
“I’m tired now of the elections, People spoke. Move on, get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly. They are going to have to compromise, It’s not a dirty word.” – Former First Lady Barbara Bush
