Happy New Year To You And The Oddly Titled "Yours"

The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill, and suspicion can destroy, and the thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own; for the children, and the children yet unborn.

A great quote from the Twilight Zone episode "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street," which I saw tonight during the marathon. That one's for you, Torii!

Well, my Winter Red Sox, aka the Cornhuskers, gave it a good fight in their bowl game today, but gave up too many big plays on D, losing to a Georgia squad that was 5 yards shy of playing for a national championship. (I didn't appreciate that one guy trying to rip Taylor's head off on the last play, or the announcers/refs for not noticing/caring.) Next year we've got Taylor back for his 9th and final year, hopefully at this time in 2014 I'll be talking about championship dreams.
