This morning I tweeted a quote by Henry Thoreau, "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." It piqued my interest, so I set out to determine what the renowned author believed to be the root of all evil. I found a good description of his quote on the quora website. After reading that analysis I found myself searching for information related to his political leanings, which led me to this Wall Street Journal article. Perhaps you'll find those items as interesting as I have.
This will be a site for my idle ramblings. I started using the wtfo acronym many years ago in the service so when choosing internet monikers a long time ago, I incorporated it into the first domain name I registered.
