Quote of The Week

"Truth is what your contemporaries let you get away with."

Richard Rorty



In the age of tweets, twitters and texts a web page featuring complete sentences is obviously on a par with the manual typewriter and the quill pen. This is very old fashioned stuff indeed, and I have reached an age where I need make no apology for it. If you enjoy these essays and random observations please let me know. If there is nothing but a great silence out there in cyberspace I will have to assume that you are stunned with admiration.
