Audio clip heard on the Thomm Hartmann Show this morning:

"We do not need to resort to rhetorical threats to prove we are resolute."

That sentence reminds me of what's been missing for so long. Should 21st century leaders grasp that quote, the good old days will become contemporaneous.

Your friend, Carly Simon (aka OY)

"The modern engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy. That is the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."
--John Kenneth Galbraith

If dogs run free
Then what must be,
Must be...
And that is all
--Bob Dylan

The neo-cons have gotten welfare for themselves down to a fine art.

"The meek shall inherit the earth, but not the mineral rights."
--J. Paul Getty

"The great thing about Art isn't what it give us, but what we become through it."
--Oscar Wilde

"We have Art in order not to die of life."
--Albert Camus

"I cling like a miser to the freedom I lose when surrounded by an abundance of things."
--Albert Camus

"Experience is the name so many people give to their mistakes."
--Oscar Wilde
