John and Jackie and Robert Frost and me.
The mortgage meltdown
or the war in Iraq?
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.Robert Frost
“During times of war, hatred becomes quite respectable,
even though it has to masquerade often under the guise of patriotism.”
– Howard Thurman (1900-1981)
