Unconsidering Jefferson

"By perseverance the snail reached the ark." — Charles Spurgeon, nineteenth century English preacher called the 'Prince of Preachers' 

HA! I finished adding a "quote for the day" to every blog post I've written — all 367 of them. This should not be considered an accomplishment so much as a an exercise in obsessive-compulsivness. 

Even so, I pleased myself by doing it, and I derived a great deal of satisfaction from removing every quote by Thomas Jefferson and substituting ones by African-American women. Take that you old slave-owning, racist, cruel hypocrite. You are now officially unconsidered by me. (See Reconsidering Jefferson to know why.) 

I also had a little laugh changing a blog title here and there. I had called one from last month Golden Globes Best Dressed, and there was a companion post titled Golden Globes Least Liked. I changed the latter to read Golden Globes Least Dressed as my own little personal joke. That was, after all, the reason I found a good many of the dresses entirely unacceptable.

And as always, I learned lots of Shiny things along the way.
