In passing

There is nothing that deflates one's committment to public service faster than actually dealing with the public.

I was informed today there are those who can't tell which way the wind is blowing because they can't tell their ass from a hole in the ground. I am not sure how one moves causally from a burro/burrow confusion to an inability to read a windvane, but thus spake the gentle correspondent.

Perhaps someone needs to petition Congress for statutory authority to regulate more stringently the commingling of metaphors.
