Monday, June 15, 2009
A young protester against the fraudulent election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad protects a police officer sent to repress the demonstration. Do you think the dictators of Iran, Cuba, Burma and North Korea would show the same type of empathy? That is the difference between tyranny and civility.

"Continue to express your dissent and your needs, but remember to remain civilized, for you will sorely miss civilization if it is sacrificed in the turbulence of change."

William James Durant
, 1885-1981, American philosopher and historian.
