Continuing on ad infinicky item, who said, "We are here to go?" That's nearly succinct, except for leaving out the destination part. I'm going to Heaven. I am not merely here to go there. And 'here' isn't the treasure, the goal, the summation of why. It's hardly 'why' at all.
I don't feel like dipping my toe into the tarnished present political cisternations. But I will say that President Obama is failing, and it's kind of fun to watch.

As this is just an old sci-fi space opera; they didn't spend a lot of money on the production, and the reader seems to be speaking English as his third language, so it's not like they got Kelsey Grammer to read Shakespeare.
For the record, I still have the books, and wouldn't spend a dime to have them read to me.
I WOULD like to plug the iTunes University, found through their store, which has so much free knowledge that it's almost like they left Fort Knox open.
Also, if you have iPod/iPhone or iPad...as our Aussie friends say, "Good on you.
Aussies Hamish and Andy are still on Winter break, but when they begin podcasting again next week, I encourage you to listen.they make me laugh, and who doesn't?
