RE: What are the good and bad things about your job?
No, can't top that - at least I can take one once in a while, but I have to be solidly booked up. Right now there are simply no big projects going on, everything is short term stuff. I thought I was going to be able to sneak a couple of weeks in, but it all went to hell over night. I guess the alternative is worse.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
