John Donne says it best in "For Whom The Bell Tolls" - "No Man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europeis the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's, or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - - John Donne
**A worthwhile competitor listed a copywith a 1.0 Million Dollar ($1,000,000) starting price. We therefore must raise our starting price toalmost a half aMillion ($499,000). (And some of you thought the $5,000was excessive. Take heart !! Compared to Multi-Billion Dollar bailouts, and $100 Million DollarBonuses and now a 16.8 TRILLION DOLLAR National Debt,this is a drop inthe bucket..)We believethe individual that recognizes a value as such and truly comprehends the end of an era,will make history and authenticate what we do here andhopefullysignal the economy is on the upswing.(Let the timid recoil - we will stand the test!)
