We have severely underestimated the Russians, the extent of the country and the treachery of the climate. This is the revenge of reality.

Homo sapiens is the species that invents symbols in which to invest passion and authority, then forgets that symbols are inventions.

Governor Mario Cuomo at Cornell 1987.jpg  
I think it's already apparent that a good part of this Nation understands — if only instinctively — that anything which seems to suggest that God favors a political party or the establishment of a state church, is wrong and dangerous.
Way down deep the American people are afraid of an entangling relationship between formal religions — or whole bodies of religious belief — and government. Apart from constitutional law and religious doctrine, there is a sense that tells us it's wrong to presume to speak for God or to claim God's sanction of our particular legislation and His rejection of all other positions. Most of us are offended when we see religion being trivialized by its appearance in political throw-away pamphlets.
The American people need no course in philosophy or political science or church history to know that God should not be made into a celestial party chairman.
~ Mario Cuomo ~
