Quote for today:
“As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience’s sake.” – Barak Obama, Inauguration Address, 2009
Particularly well put.
The title of this post comes from a sign on an art gallery in Washington DC which was closed for renovations, but which passers-by one after another mistook as promotional material for the new administration. I guess it is a sign of the times.
