    even though I found its reality depressing enough to want to cry.  Dickens and Twain are two of my favorite authors.  I would have loved to hang out with Mark Twain on a regular basis, he had quite a mind and superior knack for a witty and ingenious turn of phrase.  Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.

      "Our capacity for analysis has been so reduced that we may no longer be able to recognize impersonal oppression."

      That phrase captures the problem with our militaristic culture. Most of us now get all of out news and opinion from TV. Passively watching MSM TV spin doctors who are in love with wars is not a great way to develop analytical thinking.

      War is costly. Peace is priceless!
