It's difficult to read the George Marshall snip that you selected. It's common sense roars loudly across the savannah.

I've been thinking how much easier it is for the ideologue, so much ground already laid out, and how much more difficult it then becomes for everyone else.

Marshall and most Americans of the era slapped away puffery and our respectable best efforts remained.

I agree that our better policy is, as Marshall said, "not against any country or doctrine but against hunger, poverty, desperation and chaos."

Thanks for linking us to Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford. I found the story about the calligraphy classes quite interesting. Imagine our websites/blogs resembling a DOS window? :)

However his third story about death and mortality -

"...death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new."

Very profound to say the least!
