You Can Say What You Want About This Post...

...but one thing

is for certain.

This post

is definitely not ruthless.

While we're on the subject:
Why ruthless?
Why not edithless?
Or agnesless?

What is it that makes it so awful for
an individual to be "without ruth"?

And why don't we refer to honest,
well-meaning people as "ruthful"?

And what's the deal with airplane peanuts?

Interesting. I searched for the meaning of the name Ruth, and it came back with friend from one site and companion at another site.

The odd thing is that both sites google ads had "Do colon cleansers really work?"

They know that Some Guy has been there...

Great question about airline peanuts. I've often thought the same thing.

You speak the truth and you can't spell that without ruth my friend!

Shut up, Ruth.

I lost my Auntie Ruthie last year. This brought back some fond memories. Like when she used to curse in Italian or run over my foot with her walker.

Your search for the ruth will be fruitless, just like airplane peanuts.

The Ruth is out there.

I wanted to stay in quasi-denial about things like this, mostly Dr Ruth & the Judge, BR is cool. Thanks for shattering it. ~Mary

Good Lord! How can it be that I have lived under these assumptions without questioning them all this time?
