Que Sarah Sarah


With thanks to Ronni Bennett at
Time Goes By where I first saw this video. It features Laurence Lessig, Professor of Law at Stanford University. The video clip runs 12:25, and I found it more than worth my time to view and ponder . . .







As the video so adroitly emphasizes, Sarah is not worth the risk. She's a Wildcard and we cannot afford this recklessness.
A Que Sera Sera attitude
just doesn't fit this serious time in history.

What will be will be just doesn't cut it.



Que Sera Sera

(sung by Doris Day -- YouTube video here)

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be

Will I be pretty, will I be rich

Here's what she said to me.

Que Sera, Sera,

Whatever will be, will be

The future's not ours, to see

Que Sera, Sera

What will be, will be.


When I was young, I fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead

Will we have rainbows, day after day

Here's what my sweetheart said.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be

The future's not ours, to see

Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be

Will I be handsome, will I be rich

I tell them tenderly.

Que Sera, Sera,

Whatever will be, will be

The future's not ours, to see

Que Sera, Sera

What will be, will be.

As we witty folks in Neurodramaville say, "Denial ain't just a river in Egypt."
I know...so much hilarity in one workplace.
I listened through this and totally agree, but those of other opinions bring up that "the right person appears at the right time." Kind of like a DeGaulle, Churchill kind of analogy. I myself am thinking of buying a lucky rabbit's foot if the decisions aren't being made on facts.
Just as an extra though, am madly in lust with Laurence's voice.

Citizen of Earth,
Yes it was good and our hopes are good also.

Distracted,
Your stories of Neurodramaville crack me up, and make me cry, depending...
Yeah, I hear those other opinions and perhaps will agree with that sentiment if Obama wins ;)
I agree that Laurence's voice has that special quality, most definitely.
