"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Prayers for Joplin

Joplin, MO in my erstwhile home state, got hit yesterday with what appears to be about the most devastating tornado that I can remember.   Please pray for all of the people who lost their lives, and their families, and for all the rescue teams that must be working round the clock in the town to try to find and save more people.   Just a horrible, horrible tragedy.
