I'm back from Mexico. Great trip. Pictures soon. Back to work. Forgot how to type. Crap.
Some interesting quotes from a book I started reading that I think at least one person that frequents this site (who will remain nameless) should take note of.
"Faith in a holy cause is to a considerable extent a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves."
"The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready is he to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause."
"A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind of his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business.
This minding of other people's business expresses itself in gossip, snooping and meddling, and also in feverish interest in communal, national and racial affairs. In running away from ourselves we either fall on our neighbors shoulder or fly at his throat."
-- Eric Hoffer
Some food for thought anyways, given the current international political climate.
