Scenes From The Fourth Row

Ramblings about life and some other stuff that I can't remember right now.

Ideals

Once upon a time, I would hear politicians speak of returning the United States to its “Founding Principles,” and I would simply chalk it up to a type of misguided patriotism – the “Spirit of 1776,” if you will. Recently, I’ve come to realize that…
