Recent quotes about "no weapon formed against you shall prosper" and beating weapons into plowshares made me look up more about Armageddon and the war to come there, between Caesarea and Nazareth, someday.

In Moses' time, Israel was threatened by the possibility of dying by hearing and seeing G-d directly. Moses interceeded for the people, but G-d also promised a prophet - the Messiah - to come so the Jews could hear the Lord and could see the Lord - and not die in the process.

(Deuteronomy 18:14-16) 14 The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so. 15 The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. 16 For this is what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, “Let us not hear the voice of the LORD our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die.”

Imagine my surprise that "liberal" can mean limited government as well as "the end justifies the means". http://www.biblereferenceguide.com/keywords/liberal.html

I so agree. I think it was Jefferson who said, "My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government." And made a distinction between charity and taxation.

Happy birthday, internet!
Today is a significant day in the history of the Internet. On 6 August 1991, exactly twenty years ago, the World Wide Web became publicly available. Its creator, the now internationally ...

Introduction
http://www.travellifehistory.com/sftrail/sween.html

No one had heard of Internet yet in Dayton, Ohio, when I was born, nor near West Carrollton, Ohio, where I grew up and graduated. I'm not sure we even HAD computers at Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio, in the early '60s when I was there, learning my way to a BA degree in order to teach. I was a counselor at Girl Scout Camp Whipporwill near Morrow, OH and Camp Timberlake, near Wakeman OH

There were no Macs and no PCs in the junior highs where I taught, nor in the Black Hills and Pine Ridge area of South Dakota while I was a case worker for Child Welfare in Rapid City.

When I married, we raised our daughter with postal, not e-mail.

Moving to Kansas in the early '70s opened new horizons for me. My husband and I discovered some Kansas history for ourselves on the nearby remnants of the Santa Fe Trail. We got our first PC partially so I could record and reorganize family history information after finding the grave of a 37 year old distant cousin buried in 1867 with her last baby, near the Trail.

In 1989, our first grandson was born and Tim Berners-Lee conceived the World Wide Web. (Update on Tim Berners Lee from Time) By the time our grandson was 5, he had exchanged some letters (like "zxcv") with someone in Croatia via on-line chat and the Web's childhood is reflected upon by its "father" in Peter Flynn's World Wide Web Handbook (6/1995). By then, WWW pioneer Lynn Nelson had set up the first history site on the WWW. Dr. Nelson's Kansas Heritage site on Kansas history and genealogy had gathered volunteers and attracted readers. So with its history of trails, and some of its residents making groundbreaking contributions to the Web (such as Lynn Nelson, historian, or Charles Rezac, co-creator of the pre-Mosaic browser called LYNX at KU), Kansas continues to be a great place to join the Internet highway, in my opinion.
