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.

A lot of talking heads on TV are nattering about  "brokered" or "contested" conventions. They seem to be fixated on the Dump Trump campaign.. which is fine. But they don't seem to care about the Democratic campaign and its potential for problems at their convention. I understand the angst of the Republican establishment over the Trump popularity.

Sanders supporters are quite vocal and seemingly unwilling to shift their allegiance to Hillary. I remember the riots at the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968 and think the Dems are more likely to create havoc at their convention this summer than Reps. Hillary has these "super-delegates" and Sanders has a real uphill battle overcoming them.

I guess we will find out in the summer.
