This site is the personal weblog of Pete Skillman. All opinions posted here are my own.
I post about events in my life, history (especially Civil War history), government and political philosophy, law, and technology issues.
The name, “No Vice & No Virtue” comes from one of my favorite quotations from Barry Goldwater: “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” This thought really resonates with me – moderation for its own sake is empty. Some things need to be vigorously pursued.
