Gallery of the Absurd: John McCain & Sarah Palin: Rocky and Bullwinkle

"Can you believe it, Hillary?".................."I CANNOT!!!!!"
I was there, at Loquillo's concert, last Sunday. The song is a version of a poem that has always been a favorite of mine, especially as you can see a fragment of it at the Universidad Complutense subway station.

NO VOLVERÉ A SER JOVEN
Que la vida iba en serio
uno lo empieza a comprender más tarde
-como todos los jóvenes, yo vine
a llevarme la vida por delante.

y marcharme entre aplausos

las dimensiones del teatro.
Pero ha pasado el tiempo
y la verdad desagradable asoma:
es el único argumento de la obra.

and the ugly truth begins to show:
to age, to die,
is the only plot of the play.
