Mean mean stride

Just for old time's sake:

And I met a guy named Tom Sawner. Now, he's an old fighter pilot, which means, umm, there's no wall he can run through, you know, he's a, he's a, you know, he's a he's a doer, an achiever, and he's got him a small business called Educational Options.

Most thankful for the brilliance of the British helicopter crews that fired under courage and helped evacuate wounded Iraqi soldiers.

And so, so long as I'm the President, my measure of success is victory and success.

We've had seven years working together, a chance to have some pretty candid exchanges. And secondly and this is his [Russian President Putin's] last this will be our last face-to-face meeting as a presidency, and I'll thank him.

Well, with his new secretary of crisis and weather management, President Bush should be set.

I have always considered success to be a great measure of success. Victory too. Thumbs up.

It pained me, Tom, as I hate Rush with all the passion burning inside me (no offense), but sincee the guy in Bush's quote is named Tom Sawner, it reminded me of Tom Sawyer, of course.
But you knew that.

Our great computers fill the hallowed halls."

Seriously, how can you not like Rush?

some people, my mother included, just can't stand-nay- can't HANDLE Geddy Lee's alto discharge. I just respect the fact that he can bust out killer bass lines while singing some straight poetry about the future, and then go right into a KEYBOARD SOLO. come on. give the man his propers. Don't even get me started on Neil Peart. Alex Lifeson is a different story. Pretty sure he's probably a huge asshole. He does shred though. Anyway, greatest 3-piece prog-rock band of all time? certainly. most aesthetically pleasing music? well, who's to judge?

What can this strange device be?
When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
It's got wires that vibrate and give music
What can this thing be that I found?
