all the more reason

"shake off all the fears and servile prejudices under which weak minds are servilely crouched. fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. question with boldness even the existence of god; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

Good quote. This is indeed a tall order for mere mortals, but a worthy one.

no "toot toot" allowed by crew who kept a firm grip on things!!! Order, all is order on the trains, except for maintenance...oh, well. must be a test, always a test, no??

These are the worst...most dangerous times I've ever seen.

Internationally, a new cold war with a lot more technology AND WITH A MAD"MAN" ON ONE END OF IT.

Domestically, the systematic removal of our rights as citizens, FIRST SUBTLE AND SLOWLY, NOW BLATANT AND RAPIDLY.

The knowledge we have accumulated in 200+ years, only to be thrown away in six - and in the name of God, no less!!
