I typically spend a Sunday morning in my own church - sitting at my computer and writing posts featuring quotes from our Founding Fathers and other historical "people of interest." I have absolutely no problem being the person who jambs the stick in the spinning wheel spokes to get it to stop turning. Sometimes, you just have to fly over those damned handlebars. Unfortunately since we don't seem to learn from our mistakes in a political sense, perhaps being reminded of the lessons already learned will "ennervate" the discussion. Psycholinguistics is my name, and Politics, Change and Lovin Life are my games. Go ahead, just GIVE me something to write about!
