We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.”   —   H.W. Longfellow

(Sad, but true.  Nice job of disguising the author’s name!  Since I write down the T’s and E’s last it took me a while to see who it was.  Fortunately, it was pretty obvious the S was the E!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(It’s a good thing that old Henry Wadsworth never lived to see the likes of Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives of – – – , and a slew of other “reality” shows!  And, to think that commercial television was once referred to as a “vast wasteland“, way back in 1961.  I wonder what Mr. Newton N.
