    I asked him why didn't he just adopt his middle name (Robert...should've been Robert Bruce) and he said because Bruce was his grandpa's name and he loved it.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    When I hear "Bruce," I think of one thing: Monty Python.



    Conservatives will always be with us. If conservatives become convinced that they can not win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will reject democracy.
