[Run by the people? Is that how it was in your day?]

"In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to say it" - Jacques Cousteau

 

:o

Entre nous-- Jacques wanted to start with his own son Jacques Cousteau Jr.

 

BTW-- What's up with the Juniors?

"The sense of wishing to be known only for what one really is is like putting on an old, easy, comfortable garment. You are no longer afraid of anybody or anything. You say to yourself, 'Here I am --- just so ugly, dull, poor, beautiful, rich, interesting, amusing, ridiculous -- take me or leave me.' And how absolutely beautiful it is to be doing only what lies within your own capabilities and is part of your own nature. It is like a great burden rolled off a man's back when he comes to want to appear nothing that he is not, to take out of life only what is truly his own." ---David Grayson, journalist and author (1870-1946)

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we

are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and

servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." ---Theodore Roosevelt,

26th US President (1858-1919)

 

[Take that, Trumpies! Yer unpatriotic and servile on account of yer morally treasonable!]

Yes, Mr Grayson tends to be prolix. But I doubt if he would blanch at the criticism. "Here I am, just so prolix. Take me or leave me."

"To blame the poor for subsisting on welfare has no justice unless we are also willing to judge every rich member of society by how productive he or she is. Taken individual by individual, it is likely that there's more idleness and abuse of government favors among the economically privileged than among the ranks of the disadvantaged." ---Norman Mailer

"The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the

living tissue of the city. Its appetite for space is absolutely insatiable;

moving and parked, it devours urban land, leaving the buildings as mere

islands of habitable space in a sea of dangerous and ugly traffic." ---James

Marston Fitch, historic preservationist (1909-2000)
