"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Let Us Now Praise Canada

No, seriously.

Dragged out an old Linda Ronstadt album, "Heart Like A Wheel" (don't tell NYMary, she'll think I'm poaching her territory!), which reminded me of all my Kate and Anna McGarrigle albums, and all their songs that Ronstadt performed, and then Leonard Cohen and his albums, and all his songs that Judy Collins performed....(and yes, I have all of these, recorded on one medium or another).

Any country that can produce Cohen and the McGarrigle sisters is deserving of a ranking with Ireland, England, and Greece for great literary artists. Although producing either one would be sufficient.

"And it's only love, and it's only love/That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out."
