Conan On What Is Best In Life
Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?
Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.
Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.
Mongol General: That is good! That is good.
Counted the Stars
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

Can't say I have been the most observant Jew in the last 39 years. My mother is still irritated over that. I guess the profession of the sea didn't help.
This is a day that should be remembered by all of us. It is there to remind us of what can happen when no one stands for something.
We as The American People need to keep this in mind.
Off the soap box now.
