Here is the last installment of quotes from Frank J Romano’s book Frank Talk, The Computer Did It 

“Buzzwords are fast food for thought.”

On the topic of “fake news” before the word was coined:

“What happens when artificial intelligence meets artificial reality? National Enquirer.”

The ice is melting in Antarctica. Years before we knew this, Romano wrote:

“Archaeologists have discovered that Antarctica, when viewed from above, has the notation ‘This continent intentionally left blank.’ God may be getting ready for an update.”

“We do need artificial intelligence. There isn’t enough of the real thing.”

Does anything ever change?

“Vignette: As usual I was on an Amtrak train riding from New York to Boston recently and the guy next to me in the Club car had an IBM portable PC which he was clickety-clacking to death. The just when I thought I would get some quiet he whips out a cellular telephone and proceeds to call most of the population in Cleveland.”

“Life calls the tune, we dance.” – John Galsworthy

After yesterday’s horrendous act of violence in Great Britain, I’m sure many people want vengeance. This morning I came across a quote from Pope Francis. He said it during his Angelus Address on Feb 19. It reflects on Jesus’ teaching about turning the other cheek and how the law of love overcomes that of retaliation; it describes the difference between justice and vengeance:

“We are allowed to ask for justice; it is our duty to practice justice. On the other hand, we are forbidden to revenge ourselves or to encourage vengeance in any way, insofar as it is an expression of hatred or of violence.”
