I’m painfully aware of how pathetic it looks when some unknown citizen decides to enlighten the rest of us with their manifesto or theory on how to "fix the system" or "save the world" . ...

Ode to Adams
John Adams died on the 4th of July. Perhaps this was coincidence, but having read a bit of his work I strongly suspect not. I think he was disgusted. I think he chose to exit on the 4th as a ...
