One-Liner Wednesday: community

It would seem that, quite possibly, the ultimate measure of health in any community might well reside in our ability to stand in awe at what folks have to carry rather than in judgment at how they carry it.

One-Liner Wednesday: a tyrant

~~~ Gov. Mario Cuomo of New York, now deceased father of current NY governor Andrew Cuomo
