Comment by Loren Miller on Saturday

The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.
― Carl Sagan

Comment by Loren Miller on Saturday

Seems to me I should probably start reading this Charles Pierce character.  He appears to have a better than average handle on things, which these days is in short supply.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Saturday

The only conclusion I can draw from recent events is that the Fox News Channel was even more of a sewer backstage than it is on the air . . .

--Charles Pierce

Comment by Loren Miller on Friday

We have a choice. We have two options as human beings. We have a choice between conversation and war. That's it. Conversation and violence. And faith is a conversation stopper.
― Sam Harris

I thought this made a rather powerful statement ... but then, I LIKE Sam Harris.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Friday

"Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. 

 ~ Native American Proverb 

Comment by Joan Denoo on Friday

"If this earth should ever be destroyed, it will be by desire, by the lust of pleasure and self-gratification." 

~ Lame Deer 

Comment by Loren Miller on Thursday

“The reason people use a crucifix against vampires is because vampires are allergic to bullshit.”
― Richard Pryor

Funny thing – I'm pretty sure I have the same allergy!  And Gary, you're talking to a BIG fan of Dan Rather!

Loren and Daniel, I like those quotes.

Here is also a Dan Rather one that I like:

"The world is a better place when we have an open exchange of ideas."

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on April 19, 2017 at 4:41pm

I agree - it has an ecstatic, pantheistic ring. Reminds me somewhat of this one: 

Quero hacer contigo lo que la primavera hace con los cerezos.

[I want to do to you what spring does to the cherry trees.]

--Pablo Neruda

Comment by Daniel W on April 19, 2017 at 12:11pm

Loren, I'm awed by that quotation.
