Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

The Psychology of the Millionaire and Restoring Fumare to Its Original Intent

The psychology of Mr. Monaghan has always interested me. What makes him tick? As far as the answers to such questions are ascertainable, we still are not in a position to fully grasp what goes on in his soul. Nevertheless, it is not unreasonable to to look at the evidence and the facts and comment. Recently, I dusted off a copy of a book of essays by a favorite author of this blog: G.K. Chesterton. In A Miscellany of Men, he comments on the person of the millionaire. His words are not inappropriate when applied to Mr. Monaghan.
But among the rich you will never find a really generous man even by accident. They may give their money away, but they will never give themselves away; they are egoistic, secretive, dry as old bones. To be smart enough to get all that money you must be dull enough to want it.
On a graver note, I am greatly disappointed that this blog has so far strayed from its original design. While necessary, unfortunately, it has become a chronicle of the unjust destruction of Ave Maria School of Law by Monaghan and Dean Dobranski. To the end of restoring Fumare to its original intent and former glory, permit me to draw your attention to The Blue Boar, a blog about beer, bacon and Catholic living. I know that Phlogizo, Adv. Mil. (where has he even been?), Casimir, Thursday, Thales and the rest of the Fumare crowd will enjoy and welcome this blog on things more important in the final analysis.
