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.

Big things going on today: Obama heads to Cuba... along with a number of (no doubt) connected businessfolks interested in doing business on that island.

Also, Apple is announcing updated versions of the iPad and iPhone. This will be met with awe and wonder by Appleheads (who will form huge lines outside of Apple stores) and indifference by the rest of us. But phone makers all over the world will want to put out updated versions of their own phones to compete with Apple. Apple is, after all, the Big Dog in phones and tablets now.

But not so long ago there were in serious trouble and needed an infusion of cash... which they got from Bill Gates.

Funny how the world works...
