• My favourite Marx quote

    De omnibus dubitandum
    “doubt everything”

    Apparently  “Confessions” were semi-jocular questionaires that were popular in Victorian England and filling them out a common pastime in many families. Marx apparently them out several times at the behest of his daughters. In both extant questionnaires his answer to Favourite Motto was De omnibus dubitandum (doubt everything). I me across a post rd that I now use for one of my computer desktops when touring Marx’s childhood home in Trier. I immediately felt  an affinity to the sentiment.

    So if you don’t mind having a notorious socialist as your muse, I suggest everyone embrace this as their new motto in this age of misinformation and outright lies.

    A comment seen on a recent CBC. story.

    Love the story but the writing is terrible. I guess proof reading for errors has become a lost art or writers have become quite lazy. 
    “”I’m looking for looking for its parents and it doesn’t take very long before I’m looking directly eyeball to eyeball to one of them,” he said. “
    I don’t know about you, but I spell “proofreading” closed and if I am going to quote a quote then I switch the inside quotes to single quotation marks.
    Just saying.
