"Like the study of science and art, accounts of historical events can be intrinsically fascinating. But they have a wider significance. I believe that people are better able to chart their life course and make life decisions when they know how others have dealt with pressures and dilemmas---historically, contemporaneously, and in works of art. And only equipped with such understanding can we participate knowledgeably in contemporary discussions (and decisions) about the culpability of various individuals and countries in the Second World War. Only with such understanding can we ponder the responsibilty of human beings everywhere to counter current efforts at genocide in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia to bring the perpetrators to justice."
"...we humans are the kinds of animals who learn chiefly by observing others---what they value, what they spurn, how they conduct themselves from day to day, and especially, what they do when they believe that no one is looking."
----Howard Gardner, from The Disciplined Mind, published in 1999

Neckties, This One's for You; or, I Love to Laugh (long and loud and clear)

Dear reader, my good friend Neckties reminded me of a song that always made me laugh.
We got a good laugh out of it.
Please do join in.

I'm always glad to see you.

Diane, that's *exactly* the reaction I had when Necties mentioned the cartoon!
*laughing too*

As you already know, I absolutely, positively LOVE this! It’s a catchy tune combined with the best cartoon that Walt Disney (or any animator for that matter) ever created...my all-time favorite.

Yes, everyone sing along!

First you stick a rag, put it in the bag (Bump! Bump!).
Then you bend your back, put it in the sack (Bump! Bump!).
That’s the way it’s done, it’s a lot of fun (Bump! Bump!).
Cuttin’ capers puttin’ papers in the bag!


I can’t prove this, but my habit of playing this cartoon frequently on my office PC and listening to the tune as background music (with headphones, of course) was probably one of the reasons that access to youTube was banned corporate-wide by my company last year. The killjoys! Corporate America will forgive employees for many lapses. Late? No problem, just get your work done! Sick day? Get well soon (and get your work done)! But use up their bandwidth? Unforgivable!
