A life worth studying: Lewis Mumford. The meme echoes my feelings on this fourth day before the elections. Only problem is … almost everything Mumford warned of came pass and his advice remains pertinent but unheeded by many. Recall: “A day spent without the sight or sound of beauty, the contemplation of mystery, or the search of truth is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession of such days is fatal to human life.”
My favorite of his quotes: "Adding highway lanes to deal with traffic congestion is like loosening your belt to cure obesity."
If only someone could remind the Arkansas Highway Construction Department of this.
C.W. says "Happy Guy Fawkes Day."
