On turning a certain age

Two things at least can be counted on in life. No they are not death (after which there is, according to western religious belief,supernatural existence and in some eastern religions re-incarnatioin) and taxes (the government cannot collect on what it doesn't know of.

The two things I have in mind are:

(1)when something goes terribly wrong as has happened this past week in the Georgian Republic, the one most responsible for the catastrophe will place the responsibility right where it belongs: on everyone else; and (2) if you live long enough you will turn 65 -- which I have done today.

So tonight I will let the politics of war play out. I have "gone fishin'."
