Remember to Flush

Try thinking of your life as a parenthesis in eternity. The parenthesis opens at the moment of your conception and closes at the instant of your death. The space within the parenthesis is your life, surrounded by something called eternity. (Dr. Wayne Dyer, Real Magic, p. 9)


Yesterday there was a news item announcing that Sarah Palin got a job working for Fox News. Republican strategist Todd Harris, who once worked for Palin's 2008 running mate, John McCain, was quoted in The Washington Post as having said, "This gives her a platform she can use to stay relevant, to stay in the public eye and to flush out some of her policy positions." I didn't make a typo, the quote used the word, "flush" rather than "flesh." Think about it. Does she need to, "flesh out some of her policy positions" or does she need to "flush out some of her policy positions?" [BTW I found several images of Sarah Palin related to flushing. I resisted the temptation to use one with this posting.]
