"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.

Frances Gramata 1950-2015


I have sad news to tell you today, my sister-in-law passed away on Sunday. At age 64, she was young for this town. She succumbed to circulation problems caused by her diabetes and smoking. She "coded" three times the night after her surgery and then once again later in the morning (approximately 11:05 AM). I was in the room at the ICU when her heart stopped. The nurses tried to bring her back for 20+ minutes before finally giving up.

Franny was my favorite sister-in-law, the kindest, gentlest, sweetest person I ever knew. She drove me crazy at times by her naivete' and gullibility. She would give more than she had (as Faye put it) if she believed you had a need and she almost always believed that. But that was part of her charm, what endeared her to so many.

It is true that only the good die young. And Franny was one of the best.
