RE: Mr. Tikket has passed away
I admit I carried a grudge against the guy for the way he welcomed us when the first mass exodus from the Mercedes Shop occurred. He seemed to soften over time, and his opinions did not seem to have the acid edge to them lately, and I actually thought he was attempting to make some amends. I am sure he is like most of us here, a decent fellow in real life. My condolances to his family. May he rest in peace.
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.
