Don't tweet. Be happy.

Were you happy with the winners of this year's pet contest? I hope you were this happy.



Not happy:

Of all the WAT moments in the in New York Times Magazine article about how one tweet can ruin a person's life — and there were plenty — the one that stuck out to me the most was the the fact that "Delaware kept the pillory until 1905 and whippings until 1972."

Also in surprising news are the 'frighteningly sensible' proposed drones rules that came out on Sunday.

THANKS, OBAMA.


Dogs:

And when the robot dogs become self-aware after the arrival of the seven kings, we're probably going to be whipped while in the pillory.

The lesson in all of this? Don't tweet. Be happy.

The four: 
* Casinos won't make towns happy?  There's a meme for that question.
* The Perennial Catskill Mountain Railroad Debaters are happily perched in this letter at this moment. I can write that sentence every day.
* You'll be happy to hear that the artists housing complex in Kingston is on schedule to be completed by June, around the time when artists that will move there will discover that the trains going by right next to the complex are very, very loud.
* This story is missing the opinion of cats, imo.


One cat: Not happy:

In my opinion, you should spell out your sentences.

One Google Glass photo: One happy red goat at Rhino Records in Uptown Kingston.
