Saint Bill the Fristly

I just couldn't pass up this picture of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist. It comes from a Washington Times article about immigration legislation. Does this mean that building a 700-mile fence along our southern border is a holy act, or is he just saintly in general?

He also looks like he's trying to blow a tune on the microphones, as if they were reed pipes.

On this day...

... in 1609, Henry Hudson landed on Manhattan Island.
... in 1941, ground was broken for construction of the Pentagon.

... in 2001, you know what happened at both places. Interesting.

And finally,

... in 1906, Mahatma Gandhi started his non-violence movement.

rain falling from above
alights on leaves
pausing for a moment
falling to the ground

little yellow bird
flits through the drops
chirping a secret song
swoops beneath a bush

rain bird and bush
i am all of these

yet nothing
