"We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." George Orwell
"Men are so simple of mind and so dominated by immediate needs that the deceitful man can easily find those ready to be deceived."
Niccolo Machiavelli"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they've been fooled." Mark Twain
A couple of years ago during our annual Christmas visit to Iowa, I showed my then honorary, now legal grandson the great NASA composite photo of Saturn with the little blue speck that is the Earth, and read him Sagan's "The Pale Blue Dot." I like to think that helped ignite the fire he now has in his belly to become a scientist. He doesn't know which field yet; he just started high school. I'm hoping to be his mentor.
