A lazy Saturday morning... contemplating a weekend of work and riding (and probably freezing!)...
Happy Valentine's Day to y'all... We celebrated in style last night at Brandywine, with fois gras, cesaer salad for two (dressing made tableside), and chateaubriand for two, rare (and purrrfect), accompanied by a 1997 Della Valle I had been saving for a special occasion. And of course we got to share it all with each other. Truly wonderful.
Powerline notes Obama lays off the truth. "President Obama today repeated the claim we asked about yesterday at the press briefing that Jim Owens, the CEO of Caterpillar, Inc., 'said that if Congress passes our plan, this company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid off.' But after the president left the event, Owens said the exact opposite. Asked if the stimulus package would be able to stop the 22,000 layoffs or not, Owens said, 'I think realistically no. The truth is we're going to have more layoffs before we start hiring again'." Even Obama's supporters can't like this sort of lying. His desperation to get the spendulous bill passed is a bad sign.
Via LGF: Onion: Revolutionary New Drug Approved. Really, they are so good. The production values are excellent, and the satire is, well, amazing. I love it.

ZooBorn of the day: an orphan Sifaka. In addition to delighting with their cuteness, these ZooBorn posts are pretty educational; who knew there was such a thing as a Sifaka?
