Hello World!

I had an idea. It was that I could collect the various blog comments I make and replies I get in my own blog. It’s a place where I can review old ideas and receive comment freely. So, here goes:

I heard a teenager say this at the airport: “Freedom isn’t free.” He was basically saying how excited he was to join the military one day because it was a way to serve the community and protect freedom. I never jump into strangers’ conversations but this time it was particularly hard to hold my tongue. I wanted to say to the kid that threats to our freedoms (of speech, of religion or lack there-of, of press, etc.) were way more likely to come from within. I said it to my girlfriend instead.
