Quote of the day......

"No more fatuous chimera has ever infested

the brain than that you can control opinions by law or

direct belief by statute, and

no more pernicious sentiment ever tormented

the heart than the barbarous desire to do so.

The field of inquiry should remain open, and

the right of debate must be regarded as

a sacred right."

-- William E. Borah(1865-1940) U. S. Senator

It is dangerous to be right in matters

on which the established authorities are wrong.


-- Voltaire[Fran├žois Marie Arouet] (1694-1778)
