And a brief aside; while it doesn't happen frequently, the ol' Friends List (we'll use LJ's name for it) is growing slowly. If you've gotten here, and you've a mind to, feel free to add this one. If you're feeling polite, drop a line. Either way, when I spot your foot in the door, I'll wander through your place too. I like to read and I'm known for shootin' off my mouth too. Just don't take it personally if I don't add you back; I've got odd quirks which I frequently indulge.
Because I've really, really been enjoying this one (and there's no way to create an LSS feed that I know)...
A couple quotes from a favourite philosopher: Barring that natural expression of villainy which we all have, the man looked honest enough.
I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him. Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)
And quote(s) from another: May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one. -- Mal Reynolds
Maybe not a philosopher. Worth remembering, though, that this is the entire quote for when it may be mis-represented. "My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right." Carl Schurz
