Sometimes it is very difficult to understand how the front runner is chosen prior to November.
So, I sought out some general expertise:
By the rude bridge that arched the flood,(Ralph Waldo Emerson). Olde Waldo also said:
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
“The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.” - Ralph Waldo EmersonWhich to some of us would give rise to the question: "Where in the world is Waldo"?
And so it goes.
I also consulted some deep down truth experts. Hope the TED talk from this brilliant professor helps us to say "now we know":
