    Quote of the Day - July

    July 1st

    Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. Imagination has given us the steam engine, the telephone, the talking-machine, and the automobile, for these things had to be dreamed of before they became realities. So I believe that dreams--daydreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain machinery whizzing--are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to invent, and therefore to foster, civilization.
    -- L. Frank Baum

    If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.

    It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.

    Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    Did you hear about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac who stays up all night wondering if there really is a Dog?

    A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedence, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down.

    Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement.

    In tropical climes there are certain times of day
    When all the citizens retire,
    to tear their clothes off and perspire.
    It's one of those rules that the biggest fools obey,
    Because the sun is much too sultry and one must avoid
    its ultry-violet ray --
    Papalaka-papalaka-papalaka-boo. (Repeat)
    Digariga-digariga-digariga-doo. (Repeat)
    The natives grieve when the white men leave their huts,
    Because they're obviously, absolutely nuts --

    Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.
    The Japanese don't care to, the Chinese wouldn't dare to,
    Hindus and Argentines sleep firmly from twelve to one,
    But Englishmen detest a siesta,
    In the Philippines there are lovely screens,
    to protect you from the glare,
    In the Malay states there are hats like plates,
    which the Britishers won't wear,
    At twelve noon the natives swoon, and
    no further work is done -
    But Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.

    It's such a surprise for the Eastern eyes to see,
    That though the British are effete,
    they're quite impervious to heat,
    When the white man rides, every native hides in glee,
    Because the simple creatures hope he will
    impale his solar topee on a tree.
    Bolyboly-bolyboly-bolyboly-baa. (Repeat)
    Habaninny-habaninny-habaninny-haa. (Repeat)
    It seems such a shame that when the English claim the earth
    That they give rise to such hilarity and mirth -

    Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.
    The toughest Burmese bandit can never understand it.
    In Rangoon the heat of noon is just what the natives shun.
    They put their scotch or rye down, and lie down.
    In the jungle town where the sun beats down,
    to the rage of man or beast,
    The English garb of the English sahib merely gets a bit more creased.
    In Bangkok, at twelve o'clock, they foam at the mouth and run,
    But mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.

    Mad Dogs and Englishmen, go out in the midday sun.
    The smallest Malay rabbit deplores this stupid habit.
    In Hong Kong, they strike a gong, and fire off a noonday gun.
    To reprimand each inmate, who's in late.
    In the mangrove swamps where the python romps
    there is peace from twelve till two.
    Even caribous lie down and snooze, for there's nothing else to do.
    In Bengal, to move at all, is seldom if ever done,
    But mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.
    --Noel Coward - Mad Dogs and Englishmen

    We are in the Dog Days of Summer (July 3 to August 11) but what are (is) the Dog Days of Summer?

    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
