Dear Editor:

Talk, talk, talk, so much talk these days.

I would like to share with your readers the following statement by French professor, Father Longere, from 1949: “If  there is a problem somewhere … this is what happens. Three people will try to do something concrete to settle the issue. Ten people will give a lecture analyzing what the three are doing. One hundred people will commend or condemn the ten for their lecture. One thousand people will argue about the problem. And one person — only one — will involve himself so deeply in the true solution that he is too busy to listen to any of it.” Hmmmmm.
