The crazy ones and the lovers


La terre est bleue comme une orange
Jamais une erreur les mots ne mentent pas
Ils ne vous donnent plus à chanter
Au tour des baisers de s’entendre
Les fous et les amours
Elle sa bouche d’alliance
Tous les secrets tous les sourires
Et quels vêtements d’indulgence
À la croire toute nue.

Les guêpes fleurissent vert
L’aube se passe autour du cou
Un collier de fenêtres
Des ailes couvrent les feuilles
Tu as toutes les joies solaires
Tout le soleil sur la terre
Sur les chemins de ta beauté.

I remember, but not by heart (anymore).

Everyone should read this.

Beyond failure of regulation

“It used to be if you wrote a memo, they had to stop, because now there’s proof that they knew what they were doing,” she says. “But when the Justice Department doesn’t do anything, that stops being a deterrent.

Android ActionBar initially selected tab

Ok, this just cost me a few hours.  It’s not as described, the only way that works for me is:

actionBar.addTab(tab0, false);
actionBar.addTab(tab1, false);
actionBar.addTab(tab2, true);

The index thing is a lie, it’s order that seems to matter. I’m not sure if it’s a bug, outdated documentation, or something I’m doing wrong, but this works for me.

Has the G.O.P. Gone Off the Deep End?
