hey remember when I said that the financial press is the left's most underrated propaganda organ

you know what they say: when life gives you lemons, you are a fool for believing that life - a metaphysical concept - could literally present to you a lemon. metaphor is a tool used by the weak and flaccid. consider this alternative: "when bad things happen to you, try to make the best of the situation".
