THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"...In the first years of this century (now the last century) Americans were free and prideful and independent. We were an ambitious people, and any social injustices were being slowly but steadily eliminated. We were a kind and generous people, guardful of our liberties. But, after 1917, the black plague spread over Europe, and we were infected long before 1939, when a new and deliberately plotted war broke out. We were infected in the very halls of Congress, in the very inmost chambers of Washington. The disease was already in our flesh, and its foul breath was already in the mouths of our children, and its cries were ringing in every schoolroom, every college, decades before we were plunged into this series of wars which have lasted over twenty years. We were a diseased nation long before we were slaves. We were impotent before we knew we were impotent." -- Taylor Caldwell,"The Devil's Advocate"

The livin' is easy

Summer nights! The fragrant dark descends, the night creatures chitter
and chirrup, and we linger on the porch, a little wine in the glass,
children coming and going, and we inhale the sweetness of life. In
Pasadena, people are lined up outside a bank, hoping to get their money
out before it goes belly-up, and Mr. McCain's friend Mr. Gramm says we
are a nation of whiners complaining about a recession that is only
mental, but we are engulfed in summer and don't notice. We're sitting
on the porch, inhaling the breeze from the trees, and we are American
optimists.
