saturdays

Groceries were shopped for. The house was not cleaned nor were fallen leaves mulched. BUT, Goodwill was visited successfully (but then, one can always find something at Goodwill) and Sweetie was given a bath this afternoon, as well. She wasn’t very happy but she didn’t really fight it and neither was there any bloodletting. she smells quite a bit better now so we might start letting her upstairs a bit here and there. as soon as we get her and Ollie acclimated w/ each other, then we can bring black cat in (whose name is now Shadow) as well. Just a regular zoo, we are.

I love the fall foliage of gingko trees. One really can’t find quite that type of yellow in any other trees, like pools of bright glowing gold at the base of the tree trunks.

And finally, do you think that the government can, should or ought to legislate morality?  Just a lightweight question for your cognitive powers to investigate…

    isn’t our legal system (and thus our government) already based on legislating morality (at least via natural law principles)?

    legislative action results in the enactment of laws that are basically a codification of judeo-christian morality to a large extent, i would say. haven’t we decided that it’s a bad thing to kill someone or break into a person’s dwelling and steal their dual cassette deck or whatever because we’ve made judgements that those things are morally wrong and thus should be deemed illegal?

    the argument that we pass laws based on the common good rather than on underlying moral precepts is mostly just semantic gymnastics to me. or something.

    eh, what do i know? just sayin’…
