What a wonderful escape from the comparitively unimportant. I cried...a work. Fought it one saw. But my heart was touched. Yeah...for a real badass, Mr. Norris can put words together quite well. Thank you Mr. Norris for a tenderly touching tangent.
George Washington warned us in his Farewell Address about a time in America's future when we might be tempted to discard the pillars of civility: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them."

Let me give a great example of what Washington's words look like in action.
