Morning Round-Up 8-15

“The true rule, in determining to embrace, or reject any thing, is not whether it have any evil in it; but whether it have more of evil, than good. There are few things wholly evil, or wholly good. Almost everything, especially of government policy, is an inseparable compound of the two…” –Abraham Lincoln
