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.

It's Over!

Yes, this is my final post.I wanted to make the 2000th post my last one but I must have miscounted (this is, according to the blog, 2003). All I can say is, "math is hard." That's a vague reference to a doll ad of some years ago, which few people might remember but which stuck in my brain.

I am ending this because typing has become a chore due to whatever is screwing me up. Maybe it is a result of my misspent youth or the many chemicals I abused over the years. I only know that everything is harder than it should be. I feel like a 90-year-old. I would like to continue to blog, boring anyone unfortunate to happen in here, but I cannot.

I hope that I have made a difference in my readers' lives and I hope that you have taken to heart my admonitions to be aware of your innate biases so that you may better understand and control them. We all have them and we must master them in order to have a peaceful and productive society.

Wish me luck, as I wish you the same. Good-bye.

Wow. Sorry to hear this. Too bad. Hope you still kick around other blogs though! You complete a bad week for me. One, is discovering just before committing to buying a Ford Mustang V6 it didn't have an option to install Sirius; which is ridiculous if you ask me. So I decided not to buy it. Then I found out my friend pulled the plug on a business venture in Florida. I didn't lose money (I'm expected to get my money back) and may give it another whirl next year but what a disappointment. All the government's fault by the way. Bunch of #%$$#$#. If anything, I learned first hand the scourge of government regulation. It was so bad we had to pull out or else risk losing it all. But they sure want their pensions, eh?

Bah. I guess never two without three.

Good luck!

You're only back for three days before deciding "On second thought, screw it! THIS time I'm outta here for good!"
