Since I am closing my other blog, and rarely posting at either place,
I’ll start posting the stuff I would normally post over there, right

Such as:

I believe in only one thing: liberty; but I do not believe in liberty enough to want to force it upon anyone.
– H. L. Mencken


behoves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to
resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by
change of circumstances, become his own.
– Thomas Jefferson


Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
– Benjamin Franklin


Liberty can not be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.
– John Adams


Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
– George Bernard Shaw

    Just kind of a point at my blog – the post I made with the song quotes includes several that I only know because you sent me the music, originally. This makes you the only person I consider likely to be able to guess the quotes. ^_^
    Oh, I got an e-mail from William Fickas! It seems he’d Googled for his name, and found the story I wrote based on “Halls of the Dwarven Kings,” (another song I’d only heard because of you!) and was curious as to where I’d come across it, because he only knew of one other person that had ever learned it – would that person be you?
    See, you’ve done LOTS to help my musical life. ^_^

      LOL Wish you weren’t anonymous… I’m guessing who this is but shouldn’t say. This came up 8 years after you posted it, at GAFilk 2014. The person who found it thought *I* had gotten email from Sir Roderick and had written a story.

    Yes, that’s me. 🙂 The comment wasn’t originally anonymous, back when it was on Xanga & I had an account there, but at least it kept the comments themselves on the migration, right? ^^ I still have that short story, however much I might cringe at my 17-year-old self’s writing when I read it now.
