“The drift of our own political culture seems to be confirming the Founders’ intuition that representative government can only work in a population possessed of some minimum level of virtue—thrift, restraint, industriousness, stoicism in the face of misfortune, willingness to defer gratification, and concern for the common good.”
~ John Derbyshire ~
Do Some Good
Sign the petition to save Pastor Saeed from torture for his faith in Iran, and write a letter to this courageous American pastor to show him he has not been forgotten.
That’s What They™ Say
~ WHOEVER THEY™ ARE, They say that it’s always bad to start off with an apology– so I didn’t– I started with this statement.
I must apologize for the recent & relative lack of braining with essays– I’ve been very busy with family stuff, life in general, and braining takes a lot more energy than I currently have. Thus, some essays are observational crap; others vaguer repeats of older essays, and only a few I’m glad to put online.
