Something to consider

Here's a quote from William Alexander Percy that's every bit as true today as when it was written over 70 years ago:
"A good deal has been written about 'shooting at the stars.' I have never thought much of that kind of marksmanship. It may be characterized by imagination, it is lacking in common sense. I rather think it is best to draw a bead on something that you have a chance to hit. To keep any part of Mississippi clean and decent in these days, is a job that no man may deem too small."
