Did he really say that?

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes = GEORGE CARLIN...Stained glass, engraved glass, frosted glass–give me plain glass = JOHN FOWLES...Music is the mathematics of the gods = PYTHAGORAS...Nothing is more fluid than language = R.L.SWIHART

Caryl, Is That You?

In the human race
Book of Everything
Birds & bees,
Man & wife
Could all sing

In the human race
Book of Everyone
There was you
There was me
There was fun

But what was
Is no more is
Of the universe
Is now his.

Humanity is gone
From the Race
Tweet is loud
In every place
With but a

A new look
All you need


-Carl Hobbes

The poem was written by CARYL-without-the-Y...The highlight is mine.

The meaning of the poem--to me--is obvious: Caryl is angry because the Lewis Carroll School alum with the deepest pockets will no longer contribute funds to the school.

"No longer contribute" is the operative expression. For at least five years, Mr. Zuckerberg & Facebook were extremely generous to the coffers of the Lewis Carroll School of Logic.

But all good things come to an end.
