Paul Conrad's super cartoon (Nov. 12) showed Ronald Reagan in a spider's web with this caption:
"O what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive!"
--Sir Walter Scott
But according to my recollection this is not the first time the man in the White House has deceived us. I feel he has lots of practice.
Here is another quotation, which is also applicable:
"Whatever befalls the earth
befalls the sons of the earth.
Man did not weave the web of life;
he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web
he does to himself."
--Chief Seattle (1854)
