But what if the apostles had blogs?

What harm can a book do that costs a hundred crowns? Twenty volumes in folio will never cause a revolution; it's the little portable volumes of thirty sous that are to be feared. If the gospel had cost twelve hundred sesterces, the Christian religion would never have been established.
-- Voltaire (apropos of Diderot's Encyclopedia)


  1. So should Palin should lower the price she charges for her speaking engagements or the price of the ticket to hear her speak? ;)

  2. That would cause a revolution in her bank balance, or rather, would cause a counter-revolution therein.
