Two quotes

My girlfriend is on vacation in California right now… so I’ve spent more time reading online than I usually do. I found this quote in an article off of the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest website….

Jennifer Freyd:

“Ridicule is often a response of those in power when they have little to say in defense of a challenge to the status quo.”

Then last night – while watching The Colbert Show – a guest spoke some words that I know must be someone famous. The guest was talking about the Federalist Papers, but I don’t know if this is Madison or whom:

A nation must protect itself from its own ambition.

Happy 4th of July!!!
