Madison was just one man after all. It seems that you would find other opinions on this and other writings and other things that could help flesh out what it was those that framed the Constitution, and the framers of that document, and those that implemented it, and then those that had to li….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Pickering sees as a solution that the Northern way of life, in order to be preserved, must separate from the Southern. How inconvenient is that statement!?

What Dryden said was this, "Great wits are oft to madness near allied"; and that is true. It is the pure promptitude of the intellect that is in peril of a breakdown. Also people might remember of what sort of man Dryden was talking. He was not talking of any unworldly visionary like Vaughan or George Herbert. He was talking of a cynical man of the world, a sceptic, a diplomatist, a great practical politician. Such men are indeed to madness near allied. Their incessant calculation of their own brains and other people's brains is a dangerous trade. It is always perilous to the mind to reckon up the mind. A flippant person has asked why we say, "As mad as a hatter." A more flippant person might answer that a hatter is mad because he has to measure the human head. - G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
