Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Odd Little Things

Yesterday, we chanced upon my Dad's voice on the answering machine.  Today, with news that Jalen Collins of the Falcons was suspended, I briefly thought, "What will Dad say?"

But of course, recordings are all that's left of his voice and he will never be able to weigh in on the Falcons again.

On the other hand, I know exactly what he would say about Collins and I can hear him say it.  Memories may not be immortality, but it will do for now.
