My hero...Einstein!     My hero...Einstein!

Jack Basuk's Folly

                Quote 1: I have been told I am the only person who can argue in an empty room.
                Quote 2: I reside in two worlds.  The first is the world as it should be. It has shaped my politics. 
                             The second is the world as it is.  It has shaped me - into a cynic.
                Quote 3: Everyone should have the courage of my convictions, with one exception, me.
