    This is totally random...but Yankee Doodle is actually Thomas Ditson who was from my hometown. To celebrate that, my town's annual homecoming weekend is "Yankee Doodle Weekend" and there is also an elementary school named after him. Interesting tidbit of information...at least to me
    For those that are interested here's a site that gives you a lot of information on the Yankee Doodle Weekend.

    I would like to remind everyone that tarring and feathering was not just reserved for the colonials. This 'treatment' was often employed by the colonials on Tories. (See "Oliver Wiswell" by Kenneth Roberts.) For further information on Tar and Feather see here

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.

    Teach a man to fish and you get rid of him for the whole weekend.

    Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

    Love the Reagan quote. Reminds me of this one:

    "Suppose you were an idiot... And suppose you were a member of Congress ... But I repeat myself." - Mark Twain

    It's the opinion of some that crops could be grown on the moon. Which raises the fear that it may not be long before we're paying somebody not to.

    July 14th - Bastille Day

    There is no reason to accept the doctrines crafted to sustain power and privilege, or to believe that we are constrained by mysterious and unknown social laws. These are simply decisions made within institutions that are subject to human will and that must face the test of legitimacy. And if they do not meet the test, they can be replaced by other institutions that are more free and more just, as has happened often in the past."
    -- Noam Chomsky

    The Fall of the Bastille – July 14, 1789

    What follows is a Paris newspaper account of the fall of the Bastille.

    Did Marie Antoinette really say "let them eat cake"?

    Another July 14th quote...

    “What is my joy if all hands, even the unclean, can reach into it? What is my wisdom, if even the fools can dictate to me? What is my freedom, if all creatures, even the botched and the impotent, are my masters? What is my life, if I am but to bow, to agree and to obey?” – Ayn Rand (from “Anthem,” 1937)

    Buying the right computer and getting it to work properly is no more complicated than building a nuclear reactor from wristwatch parts in a darkened room using only your teeth.

    All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles have strengthened me. . . . You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    Magnetism, as you recall from physics class, is a powerful force that causes certain items to be attracted to refrigerators.

    One more for the 18th......

    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we
    take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

    I'm a middle age white guy, which means I'm constantly reminded that my particular group is responsible for the oppression of every known minority PLUS most wars PLUS government corruption PLUS pollution of the environment, not to mention that it was middle-age white guys who killed Bambi's mom.
