Sitting Donkey
The Tired Donkey blogs about cocktails, ways to get the most out of your Mac at home, work, college . . . wherever. He used to write about the unending abuse suffered by the 51% of Americans who actually pay the federal income tax. But this became too depressing, and, frankly, no one wanted to read it.

Nevertheless, if you came here looking for the Tired Donkey's brilliant analysis of our dim-witted tax system, you can still find his earlier posts. Just check the archives or the

Too Down to Rise Up?

Donkey on Sand Mod
In yesterday’s NYTimes, Sudhir Venkatesh, a professor of sociology at Columbia University, speculates about why donkeys have not taken to the streets in protest after the string of outrages Congress and the President have visited on us of late. The Tired Donkey finds his argument compelling but hopes we can shake our torpor sometime soon; a herd of angry donkeys would be a formidable force. If only we weren’t so tired.

To change the subject completely, the Tired Donkey watched the Ridley Scott outing
Body of Lies last night. The movie contains many moving scenes which include hard-working donkeys in the background. The non-donkey parts of the movie were good, too. The Tired Donkey invites his readers to submit the names of other movies with donkey extras to be included in a soon-to-be released definitive guide by the Tired Donkey called Donkeys in Cinema: The Definitive Guide.
