Trying to make sense of the Universe, one piece at a time...

As much as I'd like to deny it, most humans are creatures of emotion first.

When a logical argument comes up against an emotional appeal, nine times out of ten it's not logic that wins.

When the inevitable consequences occur, once the smoke clears the ones who drove the emotionally laden decision solemnly swear that this was not what was intended.  They declare it will never happen again and go off in an emotionally driven campaign in the opposite direction.  Santayana was right.

Rinse, lather, repeat.

I would like to be more optimistic, but every time that I try, reality tends to come back and whack the sense back into me.
