Current mood: Calm
Currently listening to: the wind
I’m re-writing this in a terse, shortened version because I lost my previous post due to internet problems. Argh.
On Sunday I went outside and found that I had a flat tire. It was freezing out and the wind was really cold, but I put the mini-spare on and drove down to John Fitch Highway to get it fixed. Turned out, there was no hole, no slash, no leak at all. It must’ve gotten cold and broken the seal with the rim or something, because it’s been fine since. Go figure.
Saw an interesting bumper sticker today. It said: “Have you seen my constitutional rights lately?”
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
— Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), Letter to Josiah Quincy, Sept. 11, 1773.
Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not
have, nor do they deserve, either one.
— President Thomas Jefferson. 1743-1826
Just some food for thought.
