This may surprise some of you, but, although there is much I could, indeed would like, to say about some of what went on this week – particularly the past couple of days, I’m not going to (yet). The relentless extreme cold of the past couple of weeks has gotten to me (as it will), so I leave you, instead, with this very timely thought from one of our Founding Fathers, Samuel Adams:

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”  — Samuel Adams
