    Pearl Harvey and The Rest of the Story

    A pen name, a nom de plume (French), is a pseudonym, in my case  it is a variant form of my real name.

    A pseudonym is a name that a person assumes for a particular purpose.

    PEARL REVERE IS MY CODE NAME, running through cyberspace with red flag warnings. One if by land two if by sea….

    AFTER OVER 900 WARNINGS posted on http://www.behindmyback.org, since  it was registered: 2013-01-29 22:20:57 …

    Click on this link, go to the bottom and watch the Snopes video clip

    it captures Paul Harvey’s radio equivalent of his 1996 newspaper version.

    Fact Check Political News Paul Harvey: ‘If I Were the Devil’ – Snopes.com

    www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/devil.asp

    Soapbox: Radio commentator Paul Harvey penned an essay entitled ‘If I Were the Devil.’ … Claim: Transcript reproduces radio commentator Paul Harvey’s essay entitled “If I Were the Devil.”. … If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    SNOPES SAYS The oldest genuine Paul Harvey version of this piece we’ve found so far appeared in his newspaper column in 1964:

    If I Were the Devil

    If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree.

    So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States.

    I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.”

    To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that “man created God,” instead of the other way around. I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.”

    In the ears of the young married I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be “extreme” in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

    And the old I would teach to pray — to say after me — “Our father which are in Washington.”

    Then I’d get organized.

    I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull, uninteresting.

    I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa.

    I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing, less work. Idle hands usually work for me.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild.

    I’d designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts and I’d get preachers to say, “She’s right.”

    With flattery and promises of power I would get the courts to vote against God and in favor of pornography.

    Thus I would evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, then from the Houses of Congress.

    Then in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science.

    If I were Satan I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg

    And the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

    If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. Then my police state would force everybody back to work.

    Then I would separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines and objectors in slave-labor camps.

    If I were Satan I’d just keep doing what I’m doing and the whole world go to hell as sure as the Devil.

    If I were the prince of darkness, I would want to engulf the whole world in darkness.

    I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — thee.

    So, I would set about however necessary to take over the United States.

    I’d subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.”

    To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince the children that man created God instead of the other way around. I’d confide that what’s bad is good and what’s good is square.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.

    And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

    If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run will. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

    With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and them from the houses of Congress.

    In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

    If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

    What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

    I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be.

    And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

    In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.

    Why does WA State DOE need an Environmental Justice WAC?

    Chapter 173-321 WAC
    Public Participation Grants

    Overview

    Introduction

    Under Chapter 70.105D RCW, Ecology administers a program for grants to “persons who may be adversely affected by a release or threatened release of a hazardous substance and not-for-profit public interest groups”. Grants are used to “facilitate public participation in the investigation and remediation of a release or threatened release of a hazardous substance and to implement the state’s solid and hazardous waste management priorities.”

    Why are we doing this rulemaking?
    In 2016, Ecology obtained an independent audit of our Public Participation Grants program. The current application process for the grants requires a significant amount of time and agency resources to establish applicant eligibility and award the grants. Changes Ecology is proposing are either specific audit recommendations or based on the agency’s experiences implementing the program.

    Input from past grant recipients and other stakeholders also indicated a need to increase the emphasis the PPG program places in reaching disadvantaged communities adversely affected by toxic contamination and cleanup work. Updating the rule now will allow us to apply these changes to grants awarded in the 2017-19 biennium.

    Scope of rulemaking
    Ecology proposes to:

    • Revise program priorities to include environmental justice
    • Revise eligibility requirements
    • Clarify the criteria used to evaluate applications
    • Revise eligible costs
    • Develop a method for renewing grants annually per Chapter 70.105D RCW
    • Streamline the grant application and evaluation process to increase consistency, transparency, objectivity, and efficiency
    • Revise the grant application process to authorize electronic submittals
    • Update grant administration requirements
    • Align Chapter 173-321 WAC to current program needs.

    Ecology will periodically update these web pages to provide up-to-date information about this rulemaking. We will notify interested parties through the agency email listserv (WAC Track), a Waste 2 Resources ListServ specifically established for the Public Participation Grants program. We will e-mail contacts identified in our grants-related database and those identified by grants staff. We will publish notice in the Washington State Register as we move through the process. To learn more about how to contact Ecology and participate in the process, please visit our public involvement page.

    Marv Chastian – Back to 1492

    A plan which is now in process of becoming federal policy ~ was hatched many years ago by two radical eco-freaks – Dave Forman the Earthfirst guy and Oregon State prof, Reed Noss.

    ——————————————————————————–

    “It is a bold attempt to grope our way back to October 1492 and find a different trail, a trail overgrown and nearly forgotten” – Words of Dave Forman, founder of Earth First – and more recently, a director of The Sierra Club. He goes on to describe his intellectual child, The Wildlands Plan: “We seek wolf tracks rather than gold” . . “Return big, charismatic species such as buffalo, grizzly bears, elk, wolves, puma (otherwise known as cougars) to their pre-Columbian haunts.” These are words he used to describe his plan for America – about 20 years ago. At the time, it appeared to be just another crazy rant. Today, it is a shadow plan being stealthily realized by government fiat.
    He goes on: “a vast system of connected wilderness reserves that would crisscross the continent . These reserves would dwarf the largest national parks. Rather than build roads, laborers would remove existing ones, along with dams, power lines and other human-made structures. Planners would choose the reserve sites with plants and animals, not people , in mind, selecting them not for recreational opportunities, but for their ecological potential. Up to half the contiguous United States would be involved in a transformation whereby “islands” of civilization would be surrounded by wilderness tracts and corridors.”
    Note: since the animals would be connected, the people would not – except by air – and probably we would be forbidden to use airplanes, since they might disturb the animals.

    “We live for the day when grizzlies in Chihuahua have an unbroken connection to grizzlies in Alaska, when grey wolf populations are continuous from New Mexico to Greenland, when vast, unbroken forests and flowing plains again thrive and support pre-Columian populations of plants and animals”. So says Forman and co-author Reed Noss, prof at Oregon State in Corvallis, OR.

    50 Grizzlies require about 12 million acres – about a dozen Olympic National Parks)

    “Our goal is to create a new political reality based on the needs of other species”, Forman. In 1492, Cholera, rabies, smallpox, yellow fever were rampant. Without modern medicine, industry, etc and with people stacked up in big city high rises, they would become rampant again.

    You can bet the half of the US to be converted to an animal park is the Western Half – not the Eastern. It starts with places such as the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Not too many people live here. It you destroy their livelihoods and industry, they will leave on their own.

    This is the philosophy behind the Elwha fiasco. Salmon is simply a word thrown in to get the backing of the public. But destroying the only spawning area for Elwha salmon certainly is not the way to enhance them. Forman’s dream is coming true. Do you like it?

    Government has already torn up many forest roads. Bureaucrats are working to deny people water, insist on huge “buffer zones” for most everything. They like to call it “science”. But it has all the earmarks of religion. Real science is that which you can prove. Unproven theories can just as easily be religion as science.

    For a dozen years bureaucrats working on unproven theories have denied us the use of a fabulous 70 acre piece of ground right next to the Port Angeles harbor. A few years ago, they denied us the valuable use of another large tract of waterfront property using the tribe as their excuse. The (so called) natives are simply immigrants who’s ancestors got here earlier than our European ancestors. Yet the WILD LANDS plan hints that maybe they will be allowed to stay in the great animal park to hunt with bow and arrow? I don’t think so. But, the idea is loaded with sentimentality – so they use it.

    One interesting and revealing clue about the true philosophy of modern “animal rights activists” is their selection of the species they attribute rights to. They are nearly all predators. Early settlers battled hugely against predators. Predators killed their livestock and sometimes people. To encourage people with the necessary skills and weapons, they put bounties on wolves and other predatory creatures. And I recall from my youth, men I knew who made their living off those bounties. Today, those bounties have been replaced with fines and/or imprisonment if you do kill predators. All of that helps to discourage folks from living in the country and eliminates attractive species (deer, elk, mountain goats, etc)

    I have video that shows salmon runs in the Elwha were excellent 50 years after the dams were built. Also video of the gorgeous Trumpeter Swans which visit the Elwha each winter – but not again after this coming one, and video showing the disgusting landscape and air full of rock dust when the upper lake was drawn down by only 10% back in the 90s. If your group would like to see it, let me know.

    So sorry to hear this Karl. I never had the privilege of meeting Marv in person. Only through our digital communications with the group. His input and views have always been very enlightening to me as with yours and Pearls. Learned a lot, laughed a lot and shook my head even more so, in agreement. Surely I will keep his memory with me. His cyber friendship to all of us, though so brief, is worth a page in our book of life.  We lost another good patriot, our neighbor Debra Perry, also on the 20th,  who served as our republican district caucus leader for years. God gained two true souls that day, who while on earth touched ours.It’s never to late to thank Marv for his friendship and goodwill.  Spirits are a powerful energy. Isn’t that what Marv left us all with? The powerful energy of his spirit to carry on? and believe in those dreams and in ourselves? We can thank him everyday for that spirit of friendship, to carry on. Next time I feel like giving up, I will think of Marv, his love for our country, of life and how he never gave up. He kept his faith. 

    I’ll put a blessing in a card from us, for Jolene and get it off this week.

    Best to you all and thanks again

    Removal of the Elwha Dams – The great Olympic Peninsula Environmental Scam

    Editorial by Marv Chastain

    Posted 6/3/2010

    Clallam County, WA – In 1992, Congress decreed that the Elwha River must be restored. While everything else in the bill was defined, they never got around to saying what it should be “restored” to. Since nobody knows what it was in pre-settlement days, the “what” has been left up to the bureaucrats. In the intervening 18 years, they have decided that the great salmon runs of the past must be restored. However, their planning does not seem to reach to anything in the ocean and blithely ignores the fact that most of the salmon do not return because they are being caught in the ocean anywhere from Siberia to Alaska to Canada to the US straits of Juan de Fuca, not only by commercial fishermen of the world, but by a huge army of US-protected sea lions, seals and other fish-eating birds and mammals.

    They have focused on the two power dams built in the early 20th century without fish ladders. Now there is no question that leaving out the fish ladders was a big mistake (they substituted a hatchery for the legal requirement for a fish ladder, with the approval of the state legislature). However, it was a mistake that could have been corrected at any time – even now. Environmental groups – Sierra Club, Earth First, and others have consistently blocked any effort to build those fish ladders, insisting on removing the dams, so now the government has bought the dams, including about 900 acres of good timber with plans to destroy those dams and the lakes they have created – in 2012. (Evidently it has taken 20 years to figure out “how”.)

    It appears the real problem is that one of those two dams in located inside the Olympic National Park (ONP). It is a big man-made structure that has created a beautiful lake (Mills) that is home to a great variety of waterfowl, water mammals and FISH. But, park people do not like anything man-made (except money).

    That dam was built in 1927, long before the ONP became a national park, by a group of local entrepreneurs headed up by Thomas Aldwell . The same group built the first dam about five miles up from the river mouth in 1910-13. Those two dams produced the first electricity for the city of Port Angeles and the local mills. During World War I, the first dam produced electricity to run the Bremerton Navy yard. As time has gone by, the local demand for electricity has exceeded the output of the two dams, so a power line from Bonneville (built in the 1930s) supplies Port Angeles and the dams’ power goes exclusively to the Daishowa paper mill.

    Just removing the dams won’t do. When the first dam was built, qualified engineering was hard to come by on this peninsula (1910). They built a huge concrete block but failed to get is properly secured to the river bed. When they closed the gates and filled up the lake, the full pressure of 100 feet of water, pushed the river right under the dam. This project was one which the dam owners had everything invested in and they were desperate. They set off a huge blast of dynamite in the rock cliffs on each of the side of the river, blowing rock down into the river bed and filling in about 75 feet behind the dam.

    When the dam is removed, there will still be a 75 foot rock and fill dam that goes back at least 100 yards from the concrete dam. That will have to be removed if salmon are to ascend the river. That will involve diverting the flow (you can’t operate heavy construction equipment in a flowing river and a salmon can’t jump 75 feet).
    Original cost estimate was $329 million 1992 dollars

    Ever hear of a big government project with vague parameters that cost less than the original estimate? That’s at least half a billion in today’s dollars.

    Loss of waterfowl and mammals

    Elwha lakes are heavily used by waterfowl (about 20 different species) and water mammals such as beaver, according to a survey of waterfowl  done (at your expense) by Martha Jordan, secretary of the Trumpeter Swan Society and an honest scientist. Somehow, that survey got carefully left out of the government’s Environmental Impact Statement.

    20+ million cubic yards of gunk

    The deluge of detritus released by removal of the lower dam will inundate the river below the dam with an average of six feet of gunk (per the government’s own scientific report). That is the only spawning ground for the fabulous Elwha Chinook – a distinct sub- species. A salmon hatchery has been built in another stream to hatch Elwha Chinook to replace the sub-species that will be destroyed. But, a government report, bearing the name of “Winter” (Brian Winter – chief of the government Dam destruction team?) written before the project was hatched, warns that this tactic may not work and an entire population should not be destroyed in anticipation that it will.

    It is also highly questionable if the salmon hatched in another stream will somehow know they are Elwha salmon. Nobody knows the mechanism or timing for a salmon being imprinted with his/her native stream.

    Why not just build a fish ladder and allow them to go on up?

    Trumpeter Swans on lake Aldwell – The world’s largest waterfowl – magnificent

    To be evicted by the Elwha project

    $27 Million Dollar “ Deal

    The government bought the dams and 900 acres of good timber for the bargain price of $27,000,000. They did so with the threat that if the owner didn’t sell, they would be forced to remove the dams at their own expense. I have it on what I consider good authority that the power produced by the dams earned the owners a nine million dollar profit in the last year they owned them. That extortion generated profit now goes to the National Park Service (NPS).  That profit may be the number one reason that removal has been delayed year-by-year now for about 12 years.

    Note: The above list is of waterfowl observed by Martha Jordan in 1994 and 1995. That does not necessarily mean it is the only waterfowl that use or nest around the lakes. This survey was paid for by the park service, but left out of their EIS (for obvious reasons).

    Strange supporters

    Why does the Audubon Society and other groups calling themselves “environmental”  support this fiasco?

    Reliable reports indicate spotted owls nest in the area.

    The cost to salmon

    The Elwha dams, unlike most hydro-electric dams, are operated on a “run of the river” basis. That is, they are normally run in such a fashion that the outflow is as nearly as possible identical to the inflow – giving the lakes a normal water level. However, in dry summers, extra water is spilled to help the salmon runs. When the dams are out, where will this extra water come from?

    The dams produce an average of 19 megawatts of electrical power. They do this with nearly century old equipment. With modern equipment, they could produce much more.

    Cost may include someone’s well

    Bottom pressure on Lake Mills is in excess of 8700 lbs per square foot. Geologic maps show a fault line running diagonally across the lake. Logic says this amount of pressure is forcing water into the fault and then into an acquifer. Who’s well will go dry when the lake is drained?

    The magnificent claims by the dam buster group that 400,000 salmon will return to the Elwha after the dams are removed, consists primarily of pink and chum salmon.   These fish do not rear in a river. They just hatch out and drift down to salt water. Hence they can be hatched in any stream and do not need the Elwha’s resources.  .  .  .  .  .JMC

    THE MASSIVE SCALE OF ASSISTANCE THE UNITED STATES PROVIDES TO NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD is a reflection of its ubiquitous presence on the world stage, AND THE SHEER SIZE OF ITS economy.

    The United States provides far more assistance than any other country in the world, AND IN TERMS OF ARMS SALES, it controls at least half the global market.

  • Three Cheers for President Trump

    President Trump announced Saturday he will not be attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

    “I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” Trump tweeted.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO,

    Then laughing with his enemies.

    ———————————————————————–

    April 30, 2011 The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

    The NOW  President Donald J. Trump was savagely mocked

    by the then, NOW X President Obama.

    Many a Truth was spoken in jest at White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

    Obama’s jokes at Trump’s expense are even more remarkable in retrospect

    Poetic Justice: Obama is  experiencing a fitting or deserved retribution for his actions.

    OBAMA’S INFAMOUS LAST WORDS

    Obama begins the roasting of Trump, saying: “Donald Trump is here tonight!  (Laughter and applause.)

    Michele Bachmann actually predicted that I would bring about the biblical end of days.  (Laughter.)  Now that’s a legacy!

    Being “Black-ish” only makes you popular for so long.  Trust me.  (Laughter.)  There’s a shelf life to that thing.  (Laughter.)

    Obama said… But all kidding aside, obviously, we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience.  (Laughter.)  For example — no, seriously, but you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership

    The Donald. Now he can get to focusing on the issues that matter.

    Obama said….Anyway, being President is never easy. I still have to fix a broken immigration system, issue veto threats, negotiate with Iran -– all while finding time to pray five times a day.  (Laughter.)  Which is strenuous.  (Laughter and applause).

    Obama tells the crowd: “Say what you will about Mr. Trump, he certainly would bring some change to the White House.”

    And these are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night.

    Mr. Trump, who appeared unsmiling throughout most of the annual dinner on Saturday night, acknowledged his occasional discomfort (“I am not looking to laugh along with my enemies”) but said he viewed the rough treatment as a measure of the fear he had struck in the Washington establishment.

    Many have speculated that Obama’s  and Meyer’s remarks at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner fueled TRUMP’S  desire to enter the political arena.

    From the old saying, “If you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door”…

    Donald J. Trump,  did write a better book “The Art Of the Deal”, Trump did preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap. Trump did develop or invent something superior to a device that WAS widely used for 8 years. “If a man can, the world will make a beaten path to his door.”

    The truth is in the pudding,  Nov 8, 2016, The idiom is usually stated the proof is in the pudding and means that the end result is the mark of the success or failure of one’s efforts or planning.

    One way or another whatever it takes

    TURNABOUT IS FAIR PLAY.

    OBAMA AND HIS  DEMOCRATS  HAD THEIR  TURN, NOW IT’S ONLY FAIR THAT, TRUMP AND HIS REPUBLICANS SHOULD HAVE THEIRS.

    THE DEMOCRATS VOTED, WE ONLY NEED A MAJORITY VOTE

    OBAMA SAID AFTER MY ELECTION I HAVE MORE FLEXIBILITY

    OBAMA SAID, ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.

    OBAMA HAD A PEN AND A PHONE

    OBAMA WROTE A GAZILLION EXECUTIVE ORDERS

    OBAMA WROTE A GAZILLION MEMORANDUMS

    OBAMA WROTE A GAZILLION PROCLAMATIONS

    OBAMA DID NOT NEED CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL

    OBAMA RELEASED OVER 200 TERRORISTS FROM GITMO

    OBAMA TRADED FIVE TERRORIST FOR ONE DESERTER

    OBAMA PARDONED AND RELEASED  839 FEDERAL PRISONERS.

    OBAMA SHORTENED THE SENTENCES OF OVER 1,000 FEDERAL PRISON INMATES

    AND ONLY ONE PERSON WAS ARRESTED.

    Bank windows and ATMs were smashed, a Starbucks was looted, anti-Trump graffiti was painted on store fronts, Molotov cocktails were thrown, and garbage fires were lit in the streets.

    On Thursday, Trump responded to the rioting by threatening to cancel federal funding for colleges that failed to protect the right of free speech.

    FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN CONFRONTED WITH VIOLENT RIOTERS, Etal.  In some cases, COLLEGE STUDENTS do not fully develop the capacity to notice and respond to social cues, and may have difficulty interacting in a group

    FOLLOW THE LAW. period

    NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS ABOUT IT…..

    Lightning up with Carl Sagan Quotes and Doubling down with and for “MY” President Trump

    IMMIGRATION VETTING?

    Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and MAKING CONSTRUCTIVE USE OF VIGOROUS CRITICISM. . Carl Sagan

    —————————————————————–

    NECULAR WAR?

    Imagine a room awash in gasoline, and there are two implacable enemies in that room. One of them has nine thousand matches. The other has seven thousand matches. Each of them is concerned about who’s ahead, who’s stronger. Well that’s the kind of situation we are actually in. The amount of weapons that are available to the United States and the Soviet Union are so bloated, so grossly in excess of what’s needed to dissuade the other, that if it weren’t so tragic, it would be laughable. What is necessary is to reduce the matches and to clean up the gasoline.  Carl Sagan

    —————————————————————————————-

    GLOBAL WARMING?

    In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. Carl Sagan:

    ——————————————————————

    ENDANGERED AND THREATENED SPECIES?

    The secrets of evolution are death and time—the deaths of enormous numbers of lifeforms that were imperfectly adapted to the environment; and time for a long succession of small mutations. . Carl Sagan

    ——————————————————————————-

    CONTROLLING THE WEATHER 1996?

    It is the responsibility of scientists never to suppress knowledge, no matter how awkward that knowledge is, no matter how it may bother those in power; we are not smart enough to decide which pieces of knowledge are permissible, and which are not. . Carl Sagan

    ————————————————————-

    POLITICS AND RELIGION?

    In science it often happens that scientists say, “You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,” and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. Carl Sagan

    I CANNOT RECALL THE LAST TIME SOMETHING LIKE THAT HAPPENED IN POLITICS OR RELIGION.
