Comments:

In the past few weeks, I've been reconsidering my post about the disappointments of a "circular" rather than a linear view of life. Perhaps it's because I sense I am slowly regaining something I believed I had "lost" years ago––a soul. Maybe I am becoming less analytical and, like my mother and my sisters, have come round to the belief that history and life are really a morality play. I've found myself looking more and more at the impact of religion and especially the spiritual implications of behavior and of understanding and accepting the consequences. Everybody, I suppose, experiences a feeling or a desire about something or someone that doesn't work out but through faith or determination learns to let go. In my case, I fell in love with someone when I was sixteen and believed I could plan both our lives. It didn't work out, and the person I married paid the price.

School Story:

It's time to fill this blank. The "comments" section of my profile will change. This one rarely will. Maybe it's age or adversity, but there is something more important than "attitude," which occupied this slot for many years. It's called faith.

That's the reason we like to say that the Class of '58 is exceptional.

Happy Birthday! Always remember that in the 19th century and well into the 20th the Navy was our only aristocracy, despite the fact that Tidewater Virginians still claim that distinction. (In Virginia, even the rednecks are snobs.) As in the Roman Empire, where a slave could rise to much higher rank, in the Navy an ordinary seaman––no gendered meaning in that designation––can take command, if necessary.

Happy Birthday!! Go on-line and you will note the large number of celebrities and/or newsworthy people born on this day. PS Your skills as a mediator are sorely needed nowadays. I'll always remember what Dean Acheson (Truman's secretary of state) once said about politics: "I've got a horse and you want to buy my horse. I lower my asking price and you raise your giving price. You get my horse. I get your money." Then there was Lyndon Johnson, responding to the remark of a well-known senator who had criticized his Vietnam policy with "Mr. President, I'm not saying anything that Walter Lippmann is not saying." Johnson's reply: "The next time you need my support for a dam in your state, why don't you ask Walter Lippmann for the money."
