Cranky Large Medium reading, 28 January

Go away.

Why are you still hanging about? Nobody but me to cut you down? Heck, let me get a pair of scissors. Oh, you don't want anything like that? Well, then what do you want? A reading? I thought you said you didn't want cutting down. Well, toots, here you are:
Make the most of what little talent you have, and aim for the highest point in your limited imagination. Never let your extensive, justifiable envy come between you and your happiness. That's a lost cause, anyway. Put your trust in those worthy of it, which pretty much means trust no one.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. It wouldn't suit you to be. Still, It couldn't hurt you to consider how much better off you are than these people, all of whom, on this date in history, ceased to hang around this plane of existence: Charlemagne, Henry VIII, Frederick John Robinson, 1st Viscount Goderich, Gustave de Molinari, Nikolay Umov, Johannes Hevelius, Émile Clapeyron, Klaus Fuchs, Pope Paul V, John McCrae, William Butler Yeats, Zora Neale Hurston, Joseph Brodsky, Astrid Lindgren, Anastasios Metaxas, Jerry Siegel, Burne Hogarth, Reynaldo Hahn, Nicola James "Jim" Capaldi, John Banner, Hal Smith, Joe Viterelli, Walter Beall, Curt Blefary, Elroy Hirsch, Don Stansauk aka Hard Boiled Haggerty, Thomas Bodley, Therese Brandl, Hans Aumeier, Arthur Liebehenschel, Lloyd M. Bucher, Henry McGee, Greg Jarvis, Christa McAuliffe, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, Francis R. Scobee, Michael J. Smith
and Billy Fury.

Ask the stars all you want, but they never answer. They're like that.
Happy birthday, anyway.
