Quote of the Day

Last Saturday's "celebration" of our war's fourth anniversary was nice. Under warm blue skies an intimate crowd of families gathered, some with their young children. There were even dogs. Particularly significant were the "celebrities" present. Those were the folks who could remember back 70 years ago, now in their 80's and 90's, to the 30's - the last time the country was truly at peace. ~Dada

(NOTE: I was going to add, "Won't it be great when these lingering remnants from another time are gone and we can war and rain hell across the face of the Earth without conscience of those who knew a better time?" Then we can eliminate all these damn peace rallies and just get on with the job of kicking ass all over the globe! But, nah, that would be too cynical, wouldn't it?)

Well, the 30's may have been peaceful, but everyone was broke. Not a bad thing maybe, but not *my* choice. Maybe the 20's, prior to the Great Depression (the wild tales my Grandmothers' told!). For peace, maybe the teens, prior to WWI would've been nice ... oh wait, suffrage ... hmmm, your cynicism is justified. ~~ D.K.
