In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
While my mother was on Cape Cod taking care of my grandfather, hospitalized with what we believe to be an intensely painful compression fracture, she went home for a day of picking up mail and rest and found the neighbor had torn our fence down.
Fortunately she had left her dog with me at my grandfather's house.
We can be so certain it's the woman driving things, because we've seen her tear down the fence with her bare hands herself. Twice.

As much as i've complained about Microsoft software and explained how an operating system monopoly perpetuates based not on quality, but on interlocking lock-ins, i wanted to believe and have said that if anyone is going to have billions of dollars and so an unreasonably larger amount of power and control, William Henry Gates III doesn't seem so bad a person to have it.
Good men try to find a solution to things. Evil men try to find someone to blame.
I wrote that during the Depression and it's just as true today.
