is my caretaker: I shall not want.
It alloweth me to play golf in subsidized pastures; it
angles with me in posted waters.
It reneweth my income; it leadeth me in the paths of
luxury for its name's sake.
Yea, tho I walk thru the dangers of the death-traps of
industry, I will fear no losses;for thou art with me: thy
privileges and thy profits they comfort me.
Thou declarest dividends unto me in the presence of my
victims; thou hast fattened my surplus with graft: my
wealth runneth over.
Surely special interests will be granted me all the days
of my life, and I will legislate in the hall of Monopoly

SOMEBODY SAY BEARTOWN
the difference between "partly cloudy" and
"partly sunny" in a weather report?
expression partly sunny was brought to you by
the same folks who brought you comfort station
and sanitary engineer. As a technical
meteorological term, partly sunny doesn't exist.
So while you might assume that a partly sunny sky should
be clearer than a partly cloudy one, the two terms
signify the same condition. You have merely encountered a
weathercaster who prefers to see the glass as half full
rather than half empty.
