With Thanks From Liberty Tree Quotes...

"The illusion of freedom [in America] will continue as long as it’s profitable
to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive
to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the
curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see
the brick wall at the back of the theater."
-- Frank Zappa
(1940-1993), Musician

"You can be up to your boobies in white satin,
with gardenias in your hair and no sugar cane for miles,
but you can still be working on a plantation."
-- Billie Holiday
(1915-1959) American Jazz Singer

"I freed thousands of slaves.
I could have freed thousands more
if they had known they were slaves."
-- Harriet Tubman
[Araminta Ross] (c.1820-1913) African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the U.S. Civil War. After escaping from captivity, she made thirteen missions to rescue over seventy slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad.

And, I'm off on another busy day... blogs to post to, articles to write... a busy freelancer, a happy freelancer. I've got new stuff all over... here's a couple from my new gig, here and here. The first one was smooth, before the editor roughed it up, sigh. That's the way it goes sometimes.
