Voting this year?

Something to consider:

“Intemperate persons should not by vote of the people be placed in positions of trust. Their influence corrupts others, and grave responsibilities are involved. With brain and nerve narcotized by tobacco and stimulus they make a law of their nature, and when the immediate influence is gone there is a collapse. Frequently human life is hanging in the balance; on the decision of those in these positions of trust depends life and liberty, or bondage and despair. How necessary that all who take part in these transactions should be those who are proved, those of self-culture, those of honesty and truth, of staunch integrity, who will spurn a bribe, who will not allow their judgment or convictions of right to be swerved by partiality or prejudice.

Only men and women of strict temperance and integrity should be admitted to our legislative halls and chosen to preside in our courts of justice. Property, reputation, and even life itself are insecure when left to the judgment of those who are intemperate and immoral. How many innocent persons have been condemned to death, how many more have been robbed of all their earthly possessions, by the injustice of drinking jurors, lawyers, witnesses, and even judges!” – The Signs of the Times, February 11, 1886.

Garlic Tofu Wrap

It’s quick, easy to make, portable and delicious. I bought fried tofu from Makro (which is like Sam’s Club, but for Thailand, and with a different membership policy), but you can fry (or bake) your own tofu, seasoned however you desire (but if it’s seasoned certain ways, you may not want to add more garlic to it). Yesterday I enjoyed it toasted, and also ate a tofu and orange marmalade wrap (this one is a more natural marmalade and the orange is bitter, so it wasn’t as good as the garlic one). I toasted them in a rice cooker.
