Charting the Straight Course PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, January 5, 2010
I think most of us would agree that we are more knowledgeable today than at any period in history, but this is not by any means an indication that we are wiser.

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Being an animal lover, I resent any homo sapien, whether a city councilman in Red Boiling Springs, or in Elm City, W.S.A., who unleashes a verbal attack against the highly intelligent chimpanzee. I submit that the chimpanzee may indeed be superior to some elected officials in their behavior.
