I think that this oldie but goodie works too. I think this is the lesson that we should learn in the wake of Hume's passing.

I'm not sad anymore. I think Hume wouldn't like to see me being sad about him.
Vienna Teng was one of his favorite musicians. This is for him.

Hume posting his own views on Immigration. Never afraid to use a symbol and a poem to express, with force, his own values.

“The New Colossus
--------------------------------

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
-----------------------
This poem by Emma Lazarus is graven on a tablet
within the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty stands."

----------
Just one more reason why Hume was so wonderful.

I'm not good at writing poetry so my tribute to Hume will have to be in prose.

Hume was such a feature on these blogs that he will leave an enormous hole here at the Huffly. Huffly should really have a black banner and do a RIP to Hume, the ubiquitous, omnipresent blogger!

Hume was funny, infuriating, obstinate, stubborn, and tenacious. He was an eloquent defender often of the current administration, but at other times was highly critical of it. Above all I think he was a one person crusa_der against stupidity. His posts were usually well-informed and brought new facts to bear or new insights to bear on an issue.

And above all he never ever dull.

Hume, your large personality here, your exuberance at times for a fight, your wit, and your tenacity will be hugely missed. May you rest in peace.

I grew up inthe 50s and 60s, and played guitar. I can tell you that, to me, at least, the Moodys seemed to concentrate on the melody and composition, and augment the tone with the poetic lyric. If you string their albums together in order, they end with the sound the next one begins with. They have always stood apart from the "blang-blang" bands of the time.

The Country You Want Back No Longer Exists

It is a minor tragedy that we tend to appreciate those among us the most when they are no longer among us. It is the loss. When you experience something special you tend to take it for granted, believing it will last forever.

Of course nothing is forever. We are all finite approaching the infinite and saddled only with questions. Ah....but what wonderful questions. I know most of us took Hume for granted. Like a sunny day you only appreciate when storm clouds loom.

But being this is HP and the words are what define us we will always have his wisdom and humor to illuminate us and in that sense Hume lives on. The written word does carry more weight than the spoken word. It is a testament.

Hume will never know how deeply he touched many of us. Maybe many of us didn't know until he passed and we had a chance to reflect on his contributions. He left a legacy and a enviable one at that.

Coming to terms with the finality of it all and finding the words.....but losing them as they fail you again......

Good night my friends....peace to all......

Well, as a Psych major, I can assure you that nobody takes much of what Freud says seriously...that guy was twisted.

But the other quotes do ring true.

The badges are really lame.
----------------------------------

I agree. So is the mention of number of fans.
One can easily opt-out of badges.

The one that is really repressive is the green one (moderator). It discourages free exchange of thoughts and ideas.
One cannot have free and open debate when some of the debaters are also moderators..”
