"It seems to be a law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win."

When his brother died leaving him property in Virginia, the seaman came to Colonial Virginia, with the intent to write poetry. However, it was the dawning of the colonial revolution and he enlisted in the service of his adopted homeland.
The standards and traditions John Paul Jones brought to the Navy live to this day. I remember from elementary school lessons. As I recall
No man should ask another to do what he will not do himself.
Times are tough in California. We are having to face the results of decades of governance by wishful thinking. We need heroes. Good men and women to serve who are willing to share in the sacrifice needed.
Leadership is What leadership does.
I am requesting the complete list of Senators who in this time of fiscal crisis have given up a couple major perks: the state car and gas card. This is one of those requests which must go by snail mail.
For now, I can tell you that Bob Huff (R, CA 29th District) deserves respect for turning in the state-paid car and the gas card to the people of California. There would be allot less cynicism about government if the legislators show they are willing to take action for the greater good.
