Thought for the day

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who as the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. [Theodore Roosevelt]

Steve Goodman : Daley's Gone (Live)

Now that Rahm Emmanuel has replaced Richard W Daley as mayor of Chicago (Largest city with a more corrupt city government than Atlanta), maybe it is time to post this Steve Goodman song about Richard J. Daley, the father of Richard W.  Among other things, Richard J was responsible for the election of JFK thus postponing the nations agony with Richard Nixon as president.
