by aengelson | December 15th, 2011

Riding home today, I saw a huge black cloud, and then when I turned onto the road past Truc Bach Lake, I saw this…

Two Hanoi skyscrapers that were under construction caught fire today.

Fortunately the two towers are still under construction, but I worried for the workers who might have been trapped stunning teen porn movies blog inside. The story is here: thankfully, no one was killed, although 15 were injured, and about 30 people had to be rescued. Work site safety is just not a priority in this country–they were incredibly lucky this wasn’t worse.

Creepy to see awesome australian dating site a couple of towers on fire. Not an image I’d care to see again.

Quotable

I heartily accept the motto,“That government is best which governs least”; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe,“That government is best which governs not at all”; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have. Government is at best but an expedient; but most governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes, inexpedient. The objections which have been brought against a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing government. The standing army is only an arm of the standing government. The government itself, which is only the mode which the people have chosen to execute their will, is equally liable to be abused and perverted before the people can act through it. Witness the present Mexican war, the work of comparatively a few individuals using the standing government as their tool; for, in the outset, the people would not have consented to this measure. . . .
But, to speak practically and as a citizen, unlike those who call themselves no-government men, I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government. Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it.
— Henry David Thoreau, “Civil Disobedience”
