Increase in productivity (we are all Haitian)

Franklin @ February 23, 2010 # 6 Comments

Image via Wikipedia I haven’t written in the longest time. My last post, I see, was back in November. What could, you would ask, force an able-body-human-being-who-enjoys-sharing-his-unwanted-opinions-with-strangers (that’s my real name) to stay away from writing and almost forget the password of the blogsite?

Franklin @ September 24, 2007 # One Comment

Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.
