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

Just when you (or I) begin to think this town is idyllic and serene, something like this happens. Let me quote from the article:
The clerk told police she was behind the counter putting together cash for a drop into the store safe when she saw a person walk up and began to say "Sir, I'll be with you in a minute."
However, she immediately recognized Bueche as a regular customer who prefers to be addressed as a woman, so she stopped mid-sentence and said, "Ma'am, I'll be with you in a minute."
According to reports, Bueche yelled, "You damn well better call me 'Ma'am,'" and threw a bottle of Mio water flavoring (I am guessing that should read "flavored water") at her from a display on the counter.
And his description:
The clerk also described Bueche as 5-foot-8 with red, curly, shoulder-length hair, a thin build and a flowery dress.
