“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

early thoughts

Finally on the downslope of the attack of the crud here, starting to feel better - plus have an actual few days of no work obligations, which is nice!

As the wife mentioned here, the munchkin terrorist brigade was up at OMG it's early again today... and in an effort to let my brain slowly become coherent, as well as providing a visual distraction for everyone I popped in an episode of Firefly - ended up choosing "The Message" for those who are fans. . Always a nice thing to watch again & as my son said "I like your space movies, they're amazing!"

Of course, it wasn't until I was into the episode that I thought about it in context of the weekend, and friends of my own who passed on. For some reason the part at the end, with the funeral in the snow will always stick with me. Reminds me I need to get something of a memorial day post together.

Anyway, on a Browncoat Note, here's Michelle Dockery's great rendition of "Mal's Song" for you all to enjoy.
