News is not History

“Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock.”

—Ben Hecht, screenwriter, playwright, novelist, director, and producer (1894-1964)

      It reminds me of that Thoreau quote: Read not the Times. Read the Eternities. 😉

      And thanks for commenting. This is my first time trying the “Aside” post format, and I didn’t know if comments were possible. The weird thing is there is no way to get to the individual post from the main page. There’s nothing to click on. I think I’ll stick with normal post formats in the future!
