Punxsatawney Phil did NOT see his shadow, indicating an early spring - which doesn't bring much comfort as the snow continues to fall and I have a 5 foot-snow drift across half of my pool and behind the truck.
So here's a quote of the day I found while looking for ways to avoid the shovel:
"There is no such thing as 'the public interest' except as the sum of the interests of individual men. And the basic, common interest of all men—all rational men—is freedom. Freedom is the first requirement of 'the public interest'—not what men do when they are free, but that they are free. All their achievements rest on that foundation." ~ “The Fascist New Frontier,” The Ayn Rand Column, 111.
