And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

I have been a fan of flying for over 60 years. it is stunning how many stories involve a person flying into a cloud and never coming out.ReplyDelete
I used to hang glide. It was an exhilarating activity. Did it for about 5 or 6 years and only gave it up because it always worked on my stomach. Couldn't do the amusement park rides as a kid, either. It's no fun puking, ever, and certainly not when you're piloting a glider. However, the act of flying, tracing the thermals, suspended above mountains with only the wind in your ears, it's a fantastic good time. Dumb asses got killed not paying attention.ReplyDelete
