The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

Now I like Bill Murray even more than before

"I think we ought to be personally responsible," he said on CNBC's "Squawk Box" Friday morning. "I think if you can take care of yourself, and then maybe try to take care of someone else, that's sort of how you're supposed to live.

"It's not a question of asking other people for help or being rescued or anything like that," he continued. "I think we've sort of gotten used to someone looking out for us, and I don't think any other person is necessarily going to be counted on to look out for us.

"I think there's only so many people that can take care of themselves, and can take care of other people. And the rest of the people … they're useful in terms of compost for the whole planet, you know."

--Bill Murray to CNBC

In homage, one of my favorite scenes from Stripes:

Army recruiter: "Have either of you been convicted of a felony?"

Murray: "Convicted? No,...never convicted"


Recruiter: "Now, if you'll just give Uncle Sam your autograph here..."

Murray: (Signing induction papers to the Army, as if signing an autograph): "Sammy, get well soon..."

Quote of the Day 2/7/2012

Wise men are instructed by reason;
Men of less understanding, by experience;
The most ignorant, by necessity;
The beasts by nature.
--Marcus Tullius Cicero
