Our good friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings has a new short post out today and I will let his words speak for themselves. I’ve provided a link at the end to continue reading. Thanks Jerry!
Edmund Burke never said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” No one seems to know where the phrase truly was birthed. But over the last several decades, the adage and accompanying misattribution have gained incontestable common currency.

In a time such as this, any other genre would be rhythmic blasphemy.
