  Invictus by William Ernest Henley (1875)

Out of the night that covers me,

      Black as the Pit from north pole to south pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

      For my conquerable soul.




In the fell clutch of Circumstance

      I have not laugh nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of Chance

       My head is bloody, but unbowed.



Beyond this place of wrath and tears

      Looms but the comedy of the light,


And yet the menace of the years

      Finds, and shall find satan, unafraid.



It matters not how strait the gate,

      How change with punishments the book,

I am the master of my fate:

      I am the captain of my soul.

  You smell that? - That's baseball in the air
For a sport that lasts the majority of the year, it always seems to be gone the longest. Spring Training here we come, and on to the regular season!

But it wouldn't be the beginning of the baseball season without this.

  Schneier Defends Privacy
It seems as privacy advocates are alwasy searching for a good and forceful answer to the dual questions of "If you have nothing to hide, surveillance doesn't matter" and "I'd rather have surveillance than be blown up by Bin Laden."

In this latest essay, Bruce Schneier has answered both of those questions eloquently and with the inescapble force of logic. While I think his originalist consitutional interpreation may not be on the surest of ground, I agree with his sentiments in full.
 
Sports, news, tech, law, even moblogging, its all here on an erratic basis!
