Infotainment has reached a new level of ubiquity in an era in which "reality"
television and reality have become so blurred that it's hard to know if ABC
News's special investigating "American Idol" last week was real journalism
about a fake show or fake journalism about a real show or whether anyone knows
the difference - or cares.

Es que la vida es un poco ridícula, si uno la mira con cuidado no es tan
seria, ni heroica como mucha gente piensa. Creo que Dios se debe estar
burlando de nosotros. La gente que se toma la vida demasiado en serio
termina con ataques cardiacos o se vuelven locos. Uno tiene que poner
las cosas en perspectiva.

Let's talk about "military targets." The phrase is so loose that President
Truman, after the nuclear bomb obliterated the population of Hiroshima, could
say: "The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima,
a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid,
insofar as possible, the killing of civilians."

Member from upstate New York: "Mr. Speaker, what is this bill about?"
Speaker Rayburn: "I don't know. It has something to do with a thing called marihuana. I think it's a narcotic of some kind."
"Mr. Speaker, does the American Medical Association support this bill?"
Member on the committee jumps up and says: "Their Doctor Wentworth[sic] came down here. They support this bill 100 percent."

"For life is at the start a chaos in which one is lost. The individual
suspects this, but he is frightened at finding himself face to face
with this terrible reality, and tries to cover it over with a curtain
of fantasy, where everything is clear. It does not worry him that his
"ideas" are not true, he uses them as trenches for the defense of his
existence, as scarecrows to frighten away reality."

If people had understood how patents would be granted when most of
today's ideas were invented and had taken out patents, the industry would
be at a complete stand-still today. The solution . . . is patent exchanges . . .
and patenting as much as we can. . . . A future start-up with no patents of
its own will be forced to pay whatever price the giants choose to impose. That
price might be high: Established companies have an interest in excluding future

Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the
citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged
sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the
drums of war have reached a fevered pitch and the blood boils with hate and the
mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the
citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism,
will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know?
For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar. -

Ours is a culture where videos like "Girls Gone Wild" inspire campus copycats
and even serious dramas like "CSI" inspire students to sign up for
forensic-science courses in droves. It would not be so bad if "Commander"
prompted some young viewers to study foreign affairs or even just buy a map.

"I think the best leaders are the lazy ones. They get everyone
enthused but let others do all the work. Funny thing is the more
you delegate, the more everybody likes it! Everyone gets to be in
charge of something like the newsletter, the April Meeting, the
web site, etc. At that point, the leader's job is to encourage his
henchlings to lazy up a little too so there's room for even more
volunteers to take care of mailing lists, snacks at the meetings,
etc. There can never be too many small jobs that a new volunteer
can handle with their eyes closed.

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

"However, I decided against it. I had been batching so long I really didn't
need a woman. And, perhaps most of all, the prospect of being cooped up with
a woman who might eventually annoy me, of being imprisoned with her - like
a criminal on Devil's Island, without hope of escape - made me shudder.
I would be better off as a middle-aged bachelor."
