As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there’s a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. William O. Douglas

    A call to pay attention to subtlety and nuance in the present along with an eye to the past to notice how we’re trending over more than a search engine nano-second. Douglas may have been our last great advocate on the court for free speech. Thanks for sharing this quote.

      You’re welcome, Al. Guys like Douglas only come around once in a great while.
