I like the Travis McGee novels in part because of the insight John D MacDonald inserts.

"This is a complex culture... The more intricate our society gets, the more semi-legal ways to steal."

"You see, dear, there is no one left to ask them a single troublesome question. Such as: Where have you been and where are you going and is it worth it."

In light of the recent travesty of a ruling in Ferguson...

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

Man is the Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion–several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself, and cuts his throat if his theology isn’t straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path to happiness and heaven. He was at it in the time of the Caesars, he was at it in Mahomet’s time, he was at it in the time of the Inquisition, he was at it in France a couple of centuries, he was at it in England in Mary’s day, he has been at it ever since he first saw the light.

“It seems to me the most obvious decision a person could make in their life: do I want to make real-world policy decided on the basis of proven facts and the reaches of what humans have gotten to do in science? Or do I want real-world decisions made based on ancient myths written by men who didn’t know what a germ or an atom was, or where the sun went at night?”

Bill Maher

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body,
but to skid in sideways torn and taddered yelling "Oh shidt what a ride!"
