    My favorite new quote!

    In writing about new legislation banning fox hunting in Britain, Debra Saunders of the SF Chronicle opined:

    "Sometimes the highest purpose of government isn't to protect or to serve, but to provide believers with the delicious satisfaction of forcing other people to do as they say. Tally ho."

    She's a conservative local columnist that I often find very rational.

    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    so simple... so to the point... SO TRUE
    "A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. Time makes more converts than reason." - Thomas Paine Common Sense.
