Things Confucius Did Not Say...

Via reader Simi L.:
Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.

Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.

Better to be pissed off than pissed on.

Lady who goes camping must beware of evil intent.

Squirrel who runs up woman's leg will not find nuts.

Man who leaps off cliff jumps to conclusion.

Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.

War does not determine who is right, it determines who is left.

Man who fight with wife all day, get no piece at night.

It takes many nails to build a crib, but only one screw to fill it.

Man who drives like hell is bound to get there.

Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.

Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement..

Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.

Finally Confucius also didn't say: A lion will not cheat on his wife, but a Tiger Wood!

What is This?

Why, it's a close-up of a hole drilled into a rock.  A Martian rock.  By Curiosity, of course...

State and City Pension Fund Reform...

Carl DeMaio is a local politician and a Reason fellow.  He's got a piece in today's WSJ ($) on the need for reform of state and city pension funds (and the pension system in general) and some specifics of what he believes are needed.

I don't disagree with him on either the problem or the need for reform.  I'm not so sure about the specifics he proposes; my own inclinations would be for something much more dramatic.  I'd be especially interested in reform that put a stop to the politician's ability (or willingness) to spend the public's future money...
