Ancient Chinese Thought for the Day

"The more artificial taboos and restrictions there are in the world, the more the people are impoverished...The more that laws and regulations are given prominence, the more thieves and robbers there will be." - Lao Tse

Ed. Are you dead or simply dying?

No "Merry Christmas?"

No "Happy New Year?"


I'm VERY disappointed in you.


William R. Barker said...

And speaking of J*E*T*S - JETS! JETS!! JETS!!!...

Wow. What a game, huh?!


P.S. - Please tell me you weren't downsized again, Ed...

P.P.S. - Hey... just concerned is all!

Sorry Bill. Just busy with life.

I will admit I was quite impressed with the Jets. But what would you expect from Buddy Ryan's boy? :)

William R. Barker said...

Glad to know you're still alive.

(Usually when you take a break you make note of the fact...)

(Oh... no criticism! I haven't posted anything on my blog since New Year's Eve; I'm still active on other blogs though and via email.)

Anyway... glad to hear all is well.

If you're of a mind... if you can spare a few moments... head on over to Rob's site.

We've got an interesting little back and forth going re: Palin.


P.S. - You ARE still employed... right? (Just MAKING SURE you're ok....)

EdMcGon said...

Yep. Still employed. The family is fine. I just have a lot going on, especially with work.

There are laws that are written and unwritten. Which do you prefer? Both are extremely powerful. But absolute power corrupts absolutely, and so we must be careful and selective with them.

EdMcGon said...

We already have too many written laws. We don't need half the laws we have.
