The world is a dangerous place

The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Masters of our fate

the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

It has been a year!

I hadn't realized it was so long since I posted. From my Facebook posting:

So we come to the end of another year, on the Grrrrrgorian calendar (Gregorian, for those without dogs). For some reason, my brain keeps thinking "Julian" calendar, mostly because I feel very julienned by this year. Some of the bits were cooked to perfection, some left too raw, and a few, blessed few, fried beyond recognition. The rest? Comfortably done.

So starts a new year, with new beginnings. From Semisonic's song, Closing Time, comes the wonderful line "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." Let's see what kind of beginnings 2010 brings.
