and now a word from Henry Adams...

Dr. Bob:

I confess that I had no idea who Henry Adams was.

But after reading he had proposed a "theory of history" based upon the Second Law of Thermodynamic and the principle of entropy, I think I could hoist a toast in his memory.

Although in recent times, it appears that the application of energy into history through the conduit of politics has caused more disorder and entropy, not less.

John Cox:

Hey Dr. Bob

That's the most interesting part of "And Now a Word From....": it might pique an interest in the source of the quote. Good on ya.

... and ain't that the truth!


This message (the originality of this message is in French) is sending respectfully and personally, to the best attention of John Cox :

Dear John,

History is rarely so alive in those days: July 6 marks the 30th anniversary of your your. Allow us to pay a pleasant duty to present our brightest hopes, which we add our best wishes for peace and good health for your 30 years (July 6, 1981 - July 6, 2011).

2011 was proclaimed the International Year of People of African Descent by Unesco. The Year aims to reinforce national measures and activities of regional and international cooperation in favor of people of African descent who aim to ensure the full enjoyment of economic, cultural, social, civil and political, to ensure their participation and integration into society in all its aspects-political, economic, social and cultural - and to promote better understanding and more great respect for the diversity of their heritage and their culture.

Relations twinning! As we know, USA and Africa (particularly the Democratic Republic of Congo) are bound by a vital friendship, you are very sensitive to the situation in our country, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We are bound by culture, of course, through art, music, dance ...

In all likelihood, April 29, June 21 and October 1 respectively are international days of dance and music. The objectives of these days are to bring the world of music and dance to honor these two arts,celebrating its universality, to cross all political barriers,cultural and ethnic, gather all of humanity in peace and friendship around Music and Dance, universal languages.

The pace and drama very best available. We write this as you seek our international ambassador and partner of our group. We would be very grateful to accept our invitation.

It is through this communication that I would leave you for the next fraternal communication.

In celebration with you, a joyous and happy birthday.

For the most part, no politician ever lost his/her position by over-estimating the intelligence of their constituency.
