I think most folks who blame someone else for keeping them from something, anything, don't really want that thing very much.

Last guy that pulled the "I've always wanted a motorcycle" routine a the gas station got, in the way of a reply, "well, BUY one . . . there's lots of bargains out there."

"Well, you know, wife, kids, uncle dies on one, dog ate my homework."

"Ah, got it."

I geared up and beat feet . . . . .
"Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance. T.R.
