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

"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.

The gay marriage issue goes before the Supreme Court. That is expected and the decision is expected to have a tremendous impact on our society. Way back in 2008, I posted my personal feelings on the subject. I still think I have the best idea on this subject... but, then, I would, wouldn't I? This pending ruling could/should have a greater impact than "Roe v. Wade" which has fueled the rift between the abortion on demand and anti-abortion factions. They are both very emotional issues. I suspect this ruling will have an even greater impact and cause even more strife in the future.
I would like to say something about Hillary Clinton. But it does not matter what I say; if you support her, you will continue to do so; if you do not, you will continue to not (support her). I am opposed to dynasties and voting based on name recognition and that about sums up my feelings on the matter.
A new NASA initiative will help lead the search for signs of life beyond our solar system. I think we'll find it... but I expect no great civilizations, full of far-advanced technologies, nothing we might call "intelligent." I am not so sure it exists on this, our own, planet.
