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 late tribute to the Greatest Generation

This should have been posted Monday...

An impromptu parade in Honolulu in August of 1945 celebrating victory in the Pacific.

Thanks, Cindy, for finding this.

Awesome. Plain fantastic.

Made me think. Watching 10 people on a Jeep makes you realize how we've lost our sense of fun and cool.
