Another brief note...

I really hate the phrase 'the deserving poor'. How smug. How self-righteous. How ludicrous to believe that moral virtue is attained through the possession of a tax code and that those without it are redundant creatures, who should take hand-outs and 'harsh but fair' advice for those who chase the mighty dollar.

Why Bother?

Life is to be lived, not controlled, and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat -Ralph Ellison
