"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

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

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

Keep Texas Wild

I knew this because they used to occupy my backyard in East Texas (before DDT and insecticides shrank their range to far west Texas) and I read about them.  (And that illustration is wholly inaccurate.  They do it from the corner of the eye, nearest the snout.  And it goes forward, not backward.)

Never saw one do it, though.   Apparently I wasn't enough of a predator.  

My undying affection for them extends to my license plate.
