Misbehaving Blogger

Blogger is acting up this morning, not letting me into the drafts of pieces already written so that I can finish one up and post it. So, I'm off to run errands and pick raspberries, and in the meantime, here's a little quote from G. K. Chesteron on the proper place of nonsense:
For there are two ways of dealing with nonsense in this world. One way is to put nonsense in the right place; as when people put nonsense into nursery rhymes. The other is to put nonsense in the wrong place; as when they put it into educational addresses, psychological criticisms, and complaints against nursery rhymes or other normal amusements of mankind.
