Thoughts from the past to ponder on this Nov. 11, 2010 (from a speech by Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, 1888):
"Nations can win success, can be rich and powerful, can cover the earth with their armies, the seas with their fleets, and yet be selfish, small and mean. Physical progress means opportunity for doing good. It means responsibility. Wealth is the end of the despicable, victory the purpose of brutality."
How far we have fallen.
