Happy Mardi Gras. I'm scrambling for a post this morning (readers at The Daily Eudemon may notice that my morning post went up almost two hours later than usual). I grabbed two GKC quote books, looking for a quote about Mardi Gras, Lent, fasting, asceticism, or something, but found nothing. I did find this: "Amusement can be a narcotic." I agree, though I don't think anyone should mention it to the people in New Orleans that are trying to have a good time.
