Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men, governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons. And why subject it to coercion? To produce uniformity? But is uniformity of opinion desirable? No more than of face and stature.

- Thomas Jefferson

Memorial Day

Is there any greater valor than giving your life for the idea of a country? That is why, on this Memorial Day, you honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

So that we may have a cookout and watermelon in our idea of freedom, people have given their lives. Not you, not I, but those who we honor today.

P.S. Donít forget to thank the Boy Scouts for leaving a flag at the grave sites of the lost heroes.
