Long periods of peace and quiet favor certain optical illusions. Among them is the assumption that the invulnerability of the home is founded upon the Constitution and safe-guarded by it. In reality, it rests upon the father of the family who, accompanied by his sons, appears with an ax on the threshold of his dwelling. -- Ernst Junger
This must be the day for old adages. This time, it's the old investment advice, "Buy low, sell high". Except if you're the government and you're investing the taxpayer's money, it's "Buy low, watch it fall."
