"Anonymity has been good to me. I think of old age as the same twilight...a value in being relieved of light pollution. You start to see the fundamentals in the sky. And that's where I am now. I can see the constellations." -Van Dyke Parks (1943-)

It wasn't uncommon for the Beatles to be asked stupid questions during their first visit to the U.S.A. in February 1964, as a matter of fact it was the norm. When someone asked John Lennon if Ringo was the best drummer in the world he replied, "The best drummer in the world? He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles!"

"The influence of the clergy, in an age of superstition, might be usefully employed to assert the rights of mankind; but so intimate is the connection between the throne and the altar, that the banner of the church has very seldom been seen on the side of the people." — Edward Gibbon, in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

"The very poor constitute the last sure recourse of the hungry tramp. The very poor can always be depended upon. They never turn away the hungry. Time and again, all over the United States, have I been refused food by the big house on the hill; and always have I received food from the little shack down by the creek or marsh, with its broken windows stuffed with rags and its tired-faced mother broken with labor. Oh, you charity-mongers! Go to the poor and learn, for the poor alone are the charitable. They neither give nor withhold from their excess. They have no excess. They give, and they withhold never, from what they need for themselves, and very often from what they cruelly need for themselves. A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog when you are just as hungry as the dog."
— Jack London, in The Road

There is no such thing as a little regulation.
It's time for people to stop asking the government to solve all their problems before they lose all their freedom of choice.
