The Loss of Sense and Sensibility 

This coming weekend begins my last foray across the pond to the land that embraced, then lost, reason. I am speaking of the West, Western Europe. The culmination of the best in art, science, engineering, and theology. Athens thought about and expressed untying the knot, loosening the ropes, unfettering the shackles, but Western Europe finally set man free. Truth and logic behind passioned reasoning unleashed that which had been leashed for millennia. No! it was not easy it was not swift, it was painful, but as with childbirth, it produced life.
