random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
I myself don't hold to any doctrine concerning wealth, and the inheritance thereof. On the one hand, who has more right to the money one has amassed during one's lifetime? Some opportunistic layabout with nothing more to recommend him than his ease-softened, skeletal, extended hand? Or one's own children? The answer seems obvious. But maybe it should be neither. Well then, how about the state? Why not let the government take it all, and use it for the public good? Mainly because when it's been tried in the past, it merely financed more official thievery.

Insomnia, maybe. This is the first personal website that I’ve developed since, umm, 1994/95 — a website I took down in 1996/97 and haven’t used since. Hundreds (maybe thousands) of web pages, for personal use, projects, & other folks, but none about “me” in years and years.
