sandwich logic and a taste of Bastiat

“Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.” Lorraine Hansberry wrote in A Raisin in the Sun.
Bastiat once wrote that “The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.” I like to pay as I go for things and for entertainment. Reminds me of a little store and restaurant up near the Caney Fork where I fished a time or two. They sold everything that you could imagine. It was there I bought a split cane fly rod and a mule skinner knife. The thing I remember most was how cold they kept the soft drinks and the fact they could make you a fried bologna sandwich between two slices of Wonder Bread with real mayo slapped on it. I would always opt for a grape soda and barbeque potato chips. And there were places there where a man could sit and have lunch and think about “nothing”. No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking. Voltaire would assert. And using woodpecker logic, I have concluded that: No problem can therefore withstand the assault of a fried bologna sandwich.
