...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

3quarksdaily


I subscribe to a Blog entitled 3quarksdaily.
On this website, guest authors and editors and I hope to present interesting items from around the web on a daily basis, in the areas of science, design, literature, current affairs, art, and anything else we deem inherently fascinating. We want to provide you with a one-stop intellectual surfing experience by culling good stuff from all over and putting it in one place. In other words, we are what has come to be known as a "filter blog"
You (I am sure) have heard the statement
that Man is a political animal. Well it turns out that amimals are political animals also. New York Times Article here.


They have just started adding poetry to the blog and this one reminds me that poetry builds pictures with words. It doesn't have to rhyme - it does have to build pictures in your mind and appeal to your emotions. Hugs, j
