There you go again Miss C. Leading me down a rabbit
hole and interfering with my day job.

I was very intrigued by The Cincinnatus from
Something Advantageous. A work of cultural significance
and in the public domain. The link will take you to
Google Books. I could get lost in it - and it's only
Volume 1.

"Changes in the Climate of Europe" caught my eye. As
did "Does the Moon Rotate?"

Or how bout this gem from the Cost of War: Consider
the prodigious sums, exceeding in all two thousand
millions of dollars, squandered by the United States
since the adoption of the Federal Constitution, in
support of the war system. Surely if these means had
been devoted to railroads and canals, to schools and
colleges, our country would possess, at the present
moment, an accumulated material power grander far than
any she now boasts.
