"I see in the future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of the war."
- Abraham Lincoln
Nov. 21, 1864 (letter to Col. William F. Elkins)

Someone flagged my bio and suspended posting until I "tell a bit more about myself". Like what, I wonder? I have a cat? Happily divorced? Vietnam era Army Vet? Blood pressure? How about last summer I sold my car and truck to use my bicycle(s) more. Although I do rent a car when circumstances require it. Four times as of 3/5/2012
