A friend posted this on Facebook today, and I'd like to preserve it a bit longer by sharing it here instead, and adding editorial.

If you're not used to Russell you may be put off by his style. I hope you can get past that because he has something to say.

There are many people in this world whose approach to life is not serious (myself included) and as a result are not always taken seriously.

You know me well enough to know I can approach serious subjects and I can also be very silly. Sometimes when I'm being silly I get taken seriously, so it doesn't always work, but that's the written medium for you.

We live in a world that is totally absurd. You may have noticed. If it takes a clown to point that out, it seems quite appropriate.

If you like what you see, there is more. Russell has written two books, which I highly recommend. They are the same combination of utter silliness and deep wisdom. These things can often be found in the same place, because those of us who see that the emperor has no clothes, are often amused by it.
