    all us old guys love Calvin and Hobbs
    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
    Personal failures are too important to be trusted to others.

    My youngest has often reminded us of ... uhm, nobody in particular!

    I once called attention to the similarity between my granddaughter and Calvin...

    Her father paused, thought, and then said, "Nope. Not comparable. We don't get snow in Alabama."
