Out of the Blue

Out first winter in this house was two years ago, and the snow was pretty extreme, about half-way through the season I began to regret not having sprung for a snow-blower. Last year we had hardly any snow at all, making me feel smart for having not succumbed to that snow-blower temptation late in the previous winter. On the other hand, this year has been one of the most extreme I can ever recall, and here we are in the first week of March, and sure enough it is snowing heavily once again. Since this is the month that comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, it certainly seems too late in the season to go for the automated snow remover, and if the pattern from last time follows, one won't be needed for next year either, but I may just try and be smart about this (for a change) and try to pick one up during the off season after spring has sprung. Of course, as luck would have it, if I pick up a snow blower, we'll probably go ten straight years without a flake, but at this point, that's a risk I'm willing to take. Yeesh.

I do not understand why he was arrested, or why wearing the T-shirt would be considered any sort of offense. The only thing I can think of is that he took off his other shirt (the one he was wearing before he bought the T-shirt), and was topless in public before putting the new T-shirt on, but the article doesn't specify that.

Its not like the T-shirt had any offensive slogans on it either. It doesn't make sense to me, and sounds rather un-American.

BTW, don't be fooled by my hair, I am in favor of regime change in Baghdad.
