A Word to the Wise

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool
than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
– Abraham Lincoln

If Mr. Lincoln were alive today, I suspect this would be
his advice to the current presidential candidates.

Enough said.

I have to say though that it would be hard to be recorded and quoted (out of context even) everywhere you go, and even everywhere you've been. I would have made an idiot out of myself in 5 minutes or less. Worse than Sarah Palin even.

Love the Abe quote, and ditto on your advice! I didn't think Blogger was completely doing away with our current Follwer thingy?! And to use the Linky one, we have to "join" it?!
