I both read and heard something today (separate somethings ... yesterday? i haven't slept yet) that stuck with me. the written was more profound and the audible more provocative.
Profane is to Profanity as Profound is to _________ ? Mull that one over for a bit ...
What I read was on the wall facing me as I entered the courtroom: "Where Law ends, there Tyranny begins."
What the judge stated just before we started filling the jurors' box was what really made me ponder. He said, "Any jury trial consists of 13 judges; one judge of the law, that's me, and 12 judges of the facts, that's you." I suppose it makes sense, but I'd never considered it that way before.
