"There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit" - Ronald Reagan
I have not had a lot to say in quite a while, and I have explained much of why that is here. Transcribing takes up a lot of time.
In addition to the transcription, the other major project that I have been putting time into is getting a speech from one of the Founding Fathers translated into Spanish. I have a full transcript of one of George Washington's speeches up on my Original Sources blog, along with a sample clip of the audio recording, for those interested in either one. It is my goal to make some sort of visual presentation for this, and I'm already in contact with a few people who I'm sure can make that happen.
We have got to be able to reach more people with the best information. Original source material. This is certainly a good way to do it.
You can’t paste any of your own material here for digestion? You have to pimp your blog to do it?
Adios, el culero blogpimp. No me gusta.
In a little known piece of historical trivia, Patrick Henry sounded exactly like Elmer Fudd...
“Gentwemen may cwy, Peace, Peace but thewe is no peace. De waw is actuawwy begun! De next gawe that sweeps fwom the nowf wiww bwing to ouw eaws the cwash of wesounding awms! Ouw bwethwen awe awweady in the fiewd! Why stand we hewe idwe? What is it that gentwemen wish? What wouwd they have? Is wife so deaw, ow peace so sweet, as to be puwchased at the pwice of chains and swavewy? Fowbid it, Awmighty God! I know not what couwse othews may take; but as fow me, give me wibewty ow give me death! “
Wait, isn't that Barney Frank?
Nope, Fudd. If it was Barney, you’d see the < spittle> HTML tags.
Sounds like the Anglican bishop in The Princess Bride. "Mawwiage...."
