A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:Said a hunted fox followed by twenty horsemen and a pack of twenty hounds, "Of course they will kill me. But how poor and how stupid they must be. Surely it would not be worth while for twenty foxes riding on twenty asses and accompanied by twenty wolves to chase and kill one man." -Kahlil Gibran, mystic, poet, and artist (1883-1931)
