Bonne fête aux Cora, Coralie, Corinne, Eric !

Our public credit is good, but the abundance of paper has produced a spirit of gambling in the funds, which has laid up our ships at the wharves as too slow instruments of profit, and has even disarmed the hand of the tailor of his needle and thimble. They say the evil will cure itself. I wish it may; but I have rarely seen a gamester cured, even by the disasters of his vocation.
Thomas Jefferson to Gouverneur Morris, 1791.

Bonne fête aux Nestor, Porphyre !

In this serious hour in our Nation's history when we are confronted with grave crises in Berlin and Southeast Asia, when we are devoting our energies to economic recovery and stability, when we are asking reservists to leave their homes and their families for months on end and servicemen to risk their lives--and four were killed in the last two days in Viet Nam and asking union members to hold down their wage requests at a time when restraint and sacrifice are being asked of every citizen, the American people will find it hard, as I do, to accept a situation in which a tiny handful of steel executives whose pursuit of private power and profit exceeds their sense of public responsibility can show such utter contempt for the interests of 185 million Americans.
JFK, News Conference April 11, 1962

"C'est excitant d'avoir une vraie crise entre vos mains, quand vous avez passé la moitié de votre vie politique à vous occuper de questions assomantes comme l'environnement."

Bonne fête aux Armand, Thorlak !

C'est une femme tellement moche qu'ils l'ont acceptée dans un club de nudistes uniquement à condition qu'elle se mette une feuille de vigne sur la tête!

The great nations have always acted like gangsters, and the small nations like prostitutes.
