    Sandy-OT

    I believe even rory will comprehend this:

    In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.

    - Edward Gibbon, English historian and acclaimed author of "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire."

    I hope everyone has a chance to meditate on the quote above, as it applies to the state of our society here and now. History may not exactly repeat, but it sure does seem to rhyme (to paraphrase Mark Twain).

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
