Our enemy has the will to destroy us, but lacks the means. We have the means to destroy our enemy, but lack the will. It is a race to see who gets what first.            -- Benjamin Netanyahu

Copied from a Northern Light search summary:

    Editors are people who separate the wheat from the chaff and publish the chaff. At least that's what some people think.

    The Internet offers a very easy and fast-growing way to eliminate the editor: It's called blogging, and it may be just the thing for you. In addition, some people say that blogs have the potential to change journalism as we know it.

    A blog is a contraction of "web log".

    It is a personal site on the Internet that, unlike a standard Web page, requires absolutely no coding or technical razzmatazz on your part. It lets you post whatever you want for all the world to see, and it lets readers respond just as easily. It is the quickest, easiest and most hassle- free way of publishing your ideas.


If you have been on the internet for longer than 15 minutes you know that everything is connected to everything. So be aware of the fact that some BLOGS may contain "bad words" or pictures or links to sites you don't want to see.

That's not my responsibility... I have provided an entry point here. But who knows where you may wind up as you click from link to link?

Lots of good stuff from the BLOG sites and lots of crap too. I am NOT responsible for where you go in cyberspace.

Happy trails. Keep your feet in the stirrups. It's the internet.
