Time for a new Profile. Times have changed and I haven’t — or maybe it’s just that times haven’t changed and I haven’t either. There seems to be just the same kinds of foolish behavior and self-interest as when I was growing up.
I remember reading about changes that occurred in the coloration of moths, as nature selected them to blend with an increasingly polluted environment. It used to be the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that endangered our society; now it’s the wolves in shepherd’s clothing we should be looking out for.
Same evil; different vernacular.

The Minister of Education had brought new teachers and ideas to the schools in the kingdom, and done such a good job that the King told him to name his reward. • The Minister asked just for a few grains of rice in the following manner: pointing to a chessboard he said, “Put a single grain of rice on the first chess square and double it on every consequent one.” • The King laughed and readily agreed • Then the Minister continued: “Oh my King, that reward would add up to an impossible sum, far greater than all the rice your kingdom could produce in many centuries!” • The King quickly realized he would be unable to fulfill his promise; and was so angered at being tricked that he proclaimed: “None of my people shall rest until they have completed this task!” • • Moral: Rationality is a virtue of the weak. • • What’s so scary about fables? The same thing that’s scary about wisdom; it shows up the pretentions of the self-serving and the fool. • Cornithaca County seeks to suppress the lessons of history and the rationality of wisdom, and substitute their new paradigm: “Doctrine = Wisdom.”
