Long may it remain so.david attenborough

Where I'm from we don't trust paper. Wealth is what's here on the premises. If I open a cupboard and see, say, thirty cans of tomato sauce and a five-pound bag of rice, I get a little thrill of well-being — much more so than if I take a look at the quarterly dividend report from my mutual fund.garrison keillor

It is my duty and privilege to employ to this end without hesitation the most appropriate and, if need be, the sharper methods.
