Things to Know - 5 March

I normally send out several links.  Today, I am busy with things that won't allow much computer time.  So, this may be it.  I usually read many articles and cull through them to figure out what is interesting and, at the same time, concise, and not too long (which would lose your attention).  However, in starting to read this one, I was naturally intrigued by what Tricky Dicky did as our President.  In this article, Nixon is revealed to be more like Treasonous Dick.  It is engrossing, and disturbing.  The Vietnam war probably could have ended many years sooner than it did.  All those events changed and ended the lives of many people (millions). This one you must read:

"If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace."
       -- John Lennon
"Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true."
       -- Bertrand Russell
"There are lots of ways of being miserable, but there's only one way of being comfortable, and that is to stop running round after happiness. If you make up your mind not to be happy there's no reason why you shouldn't have a fairly good time."
       -- Edith Wharton
"I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there."
       -- Richard Feynman
"To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk."
       -- Thomas A. Edison
