"I ain't marchin' anymore"

Today still remains Friday, 27 July 2007.

HH went out to dinner and the bookstore, and returned to find this comment:

I thought you were Herbert Hoover, HH. Seeing as you're not, I feel free to sing once more (with thanks to Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin):

"We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
For really showing us the way
You dirty rat, you Bureaucrat, you
Made us what we are today."

Come and get it, Herb!

Remind you of any other President?

Outing myself "just a splash": HH is an homage to Hermann Hesse, not Herbert Hoover.

(Obligatory Simpsons Movie Debut today reference: "Doh!")

In addition to books (e.g., a lexicon of Middle Ages English), and a multi-DVD Speak-Russian-Now set for two bucks (!), HH bought the following cinema: The Wild Bunch, The Way We Were, and the complete The Thin Man.

And Hoobert Heever reminds HH of several other presidents.

Richard W. Nixon, anyone?

(M. Nixon, of course, but invert "M", and it's ... "W".)

And bless the late Phil Ochs:
