"I would like to say 'This book is written to the glory of God', but nowadays this would be the trick of a cheat, i.e., it would not be correctly understood."--Ludwig Wittgenstein
"Talk to me about the truth of religion, and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolation of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand."--C.S. Lewis

History Lessons from Recorded History
Interesting how simple musical recordings capture the history we so easily let go of. Civility in our politics, for example. Or the immorality of walls:
Or the fact that coal mines have been shutting down for over 50 years now. I knew a man in southern Illinois laid off when a coal mine closed; fortunately, he found other work, and he taught me not to be so narrow-minded in my dislike for Wal-Mart, which gave his wife a good job and saved their family when they needed money. You have to appreciate things from the level of individuals, sometimes.
Funny how art can teach us things, if we pay attention.
