    Anyone? Anyone?


    Just watched Ben Stein on Book Tv. It's hard to explain why I like him so much but I bet you do too so let's just nod and swell with pride that he's on our side.

    I like him too but I couldn't tell you why until I read aletter he wrote to a military wife which was posted on a military blog sometime ago. He wrote with such warmth and genuine caring that I now know why I like him.

    I think that is definitely part of it. He took a long time in his talk literally stumping for active duty military personnel and more importantly, their families. He made such succint sense and from such a purely humanist point of view (without sobbing) that I found myself rallied to do the work he described as necessary to bring about the world he sees as wholly possible. It's more than just that but you have hit somewhere close to the center with that comment.

    Cheers,

    For Free:

    We are living for free;
    The air is for free,
    The clouds are for free.
    Hills and dales are for free;
    Rain and mud are for free;
    The outside of cars,
    The entrance to movie houses,
    The store windows are for free;
    It is not the same as bread and cheese,
    But salt water is for free;
    Freedom will cost you your life,
    But slavery is for free;
    We are living for free,
    For free.
