Why don’t you think of the words of Tom Paine, who said, Man did not enter this society to be worse off than he was before, or to have fewer rights than he had before, but to have those rights better secured.  When it comes to the right of the mind, he never surrenders it.  The mind, that wonderful breeding ground of contradictory impulses like love and hate and rage and empathy. They’ve all been invited to the party, so you might as well make room for them.
—Robin Green, Mitchell Burgess, Northern Exposure

    Northern Exposure was an invitation to an expansive party of the mind. For instance this reminder that the fling is the thing.

      You are welcome, Al, and thanks for the link. It’s the fling-thing.
