And so the pissed off women of Paris took down the government.

October 5, 1789: 6,000 angry working-class women — armed with everything they had and could get from the city armory — march in the rain from Paris to King Louis XVI’s palace in Versailles to demand bread. Once there, they stormed the gates and compelled the king to return with them to Paris, which proved to be his downfall.

I am 65 years old. For my entire life, there has been a war going on somewhere and usually, the US has been involved or is about to become involved.

I keep hoping, if I live long enough, there will come a day when there is no war in the news, when the U.S. has no fighting men dying somewhere for reasons no one will remember a decade later.

War doesn’t seem to be working out very well.

Before I die, I would like to see a world without war. What do you figure my odds are? Not very good I wager.
