Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

It is a Little Word

I want to talk about it. It is important. It might be everything. It could be. After all, it keeps people awake, it is significant or it is minor. But is it? It might not matter to you but it kept me awake most of the night.

Do we know what it is? Can we get along without it? I might think I have it but then I can't see it. It is driving me crazy. She had it.


Others have tried to be it, too. Sometimes I think I get it. Other times it escapes me.

It might be that but is that it?

All I know is I cannot get along without it.

It is definitely interesting to think about. Who is it in the photo?

Michael.

It seem clear to me.

Or does it?

I think the picture is of Clara Bow, the "It Girl".

She was a little before me time, but she definitely had it.

Reading about it is driving me to distraction. Douglas, you're it so please put a lid on it before it gets out.

Douglas said...

AV - I would think a poidsta might be a Hawaiian gangster...

Alan - Too late!

Michael - Google Clara Bow, as Barry knew.

Footnote: for all the attraction I seem to have for dark haired, dark eyed, girls my downfall has always been redheads.

It is far more complicated than it might appear at first glance. It deserves more examination than most folks might devote to it. It is the most pressing issue affecting our society and its moral foundations.

By George, Logisistician, I think you've got it! Unless it is nothing at all.
