Quote du Jour
To get us through those 900+ long days until this phase of the nightmare is over....From Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to a friend, on the occasion of the passage of the Alien & Sedition Act, the "PATRIOT Act" of its day:
A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt.... If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake.
Reign of witches indeed. Although please remember this is a comparison of a metaphorical nature, and no offense to practitioners of Wicca is intended. I rather doubt Tom even believed in witches anyway.
