Making It

Did you see the short You Tube video of a squirrel trying to jump from a fence to the roof of a garage? It’s hilarious and instructive of how one should never attempt a line of sight leap through the air because gravity does have a say in your trajectory.

The You Tube clip’s sound track needed improvement however, which is what I did before reloading it at the website.

The symbology of the clip is appropriate to my coverage of all things Tom DeLay as he was being tried for money laundering this week in Austin. Like the squirrel, Tom DeLay disregarded a law that was put there for a reason. In his case, the law was put there to prevent people from buying elections. In the squirrel’s case, the law was put there to prevent people, the squirrel, and everything else, from flying off the face of the earth at over 600 meters per second.

Gravity. It’s not just a good idea, it’s the law.
