Loyalty to a petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul. – Mark Twain I think I'll ponder this today, because it's axiomatic: there are some opinions stuffed and mounted between my ears that simply no longer serve truth. There are also several arriving every day, mostly by email, that I would be better off not taking in. Mark Twain was a horse of a different stripe, and still under-appreciated. If I made a list of dead famous people I'd like to meet, he'd be there. He was great, and that's my opinion.
