A few of my favorite things.........


*  A great speech about true American heroes (starts at 5:20).

*  Mark Perry's latest collection of Thomas Sowell quotes.  A taste:

        12. Helping the Poor. It was Thomas Edison who brought us 
        electricity, not the Sierra Club. It was the Wright brothers who 
        got us off the ground, not the Federal Aviation Administration. It 
        was Henry Ford who ended the isolation of millions of Americans 
        by making the automobile affordable, not Ralph Nader.
       Those who have helped the poor the most have not been those who 
       have gone around loudly expressing “compassion” for the poor, 
      but those who found ways to make industry more productive and 
      distribution more efficient, so that the poor of today can afford 
      things that the affluent of yesterday could only dream about.

*  A daily scroll through the posts at David Kanigan's Thrive.

*  Zen Flash on breaking out of the "prison of seriousness:"
      "Break free into joy, bliss, fun, silliness, humor, laughter. Awaken"

*  At the movies:  Took the family to see Concussion this weekend.   
    Great film making.  Will Smith was phenomenal.   Great cast, 
    especially David Morse as Mike Webster. Do go see it.
