Thought for the day ...

One act of beneficence, one act of real usefulness, is worth all the abstract sentiment in the world. Sentiment is a disgrace, instead of an ornament, unless it lead us to good actions.
- Ann Radcliffe, born on this date in 1764

    Thought for the day:

    "You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."
    - Gen. James Mattis, new commander of U.S. Central Command in Afghanistan
