"I got the dismals. Not exactly the dumps or mulligrubs, more like moody and uncertain, as when you don't know what's going to happen next." Fred Schmidt; Middle East Thing Puts Chill on Festivities; San Antonio Express-News (Texas); Dec 30, 1990.
The best politics is right action. -Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)
