Bumper Sticker -

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said, "Practice Compassionate Impeachment."   I like it!!

I am reading a wonderful book I highly recommend, Why Can't We Be Good, by Jacob Needleman.

I love this paragraph from the book.  He was a most precocious young man and spent a great deal of time in the library trying to decipher Plato.

    "But what was I to do about Plato?  There it was: two massive volumes with a name so intriguing to me as the contents were indigestible: The Dialogues of Plato. I must have renewed those books twenty times at our school library, until, finally, our librarian, a tiny, white-haired elf-woman named Miss Yoder (I never learned her first name, or thought of her as having one) stunned me by actually telling me to keep them. I later learned that she had the library order a new set, because the way I was struggling with them and lugging them back and forth appealed to her.  May God give us more such librarians!"

I agree!!
