Quote by Plato
In order to prepare for a two week trip with my lovely wife to Rome it is necessary for me to write 20 blog posts ahead of time. I don't have a lot of time to do this. I'm not sure I actually have any time to do this. But I have made a sacred charter, somewhere, I think, that says I must post a new blog post everyday. So I wanted to put a stickied explanation of the desperation of my plight at the top of each of my next twenty blog posts.
I am hoping this will explain why my comments might be (checked (X) as appropriate):
__ First drafts
xx Borderline plagiarized from someone else
__ Borderline plagiarized from myself
__ Petty about the Internet
__ Pandering to the reader
__ Technically illegal in the country of Turkey
__ Ending abruptly
xx Too frank by half
__ Pretty much just the lyrics of some song I like
__ Actually a lot like any of my regular blog posts
This particular post is:

End of Stickied Introduction
I came across this great quote for our era the other day. In trying to find it today I was thinking it was by Aldous Huxley for some reason. No, it was by Plato. Anyway, it went thusly:
The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.
Which explains an awful lot about our world right now, but then, who cares.
