Word has it that yesterday’s post has raised some hackles. Mine would be up, too, except that I just had a massage, so they’re resting. More on the last 24 hours tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a friend has asked me what makes me think that I have such a big, slobbery dog in this fight. Am I so loyal? So invested? Such a champion of truth or justice? Not at all.

I have no explanation. But I will quote Edmund Burke … “All that is needed for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Mediocre men doing nothing probably doesn’t help matters much, either.
