OT: An update and two requests
- I will not be going to Pennsic this year. My stepdaughter has hired an
attorney against me. I will need all of my resources. I was really
looking forward to being among all of my husband's friends, remembering.
I am so sorry, everyone. My apologies also for duplications, and the sad post in general.
please have an arm-wrestling match in Wilhelm's name. Ladies,
especially if you will be at the Court of Love, please extol the
virtues of my dear love in my stead.
Of all tyrannies,
a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most
oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under
omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes
sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who
torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so
with the approval of their own conscience.
--C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)
The mediator between head and hands must be the heart!
--epigraph from Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927)
