Signature: Joe Cobb "Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure their general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom." — Thomas Paine, COMMON SENSE (1776)
