I have a burning need to know stuff and I love asking awkward questions.

"The unthinking may view America's conscientious adherence to the principles of a free society as an altruism so scrupulous that self-destruction must result. Yet our principles are engraved in the history and the law of the land. If the free world is not faithful to its own moral code, there remains no society for which others may hunger."

James B. Donovan, 1964.

The world is, or can be, too harsh without a bit of Fantasy to help you get through the night. It's when the Fantastic gets out of hand, or out of proportion, that real trouble happens. Building castles in the air has never gone well, neither for their inhabitants nor those living underneath!
