The Best Things Are Often Cheap and Simple

Did you know that there are musky lures for sale for more than $70?  And yet you can buy excellent lures like a Jointed Rapala for less than $9 and Suicks for less than $20

In the movie The Warring States, about Sun Pin, the enemy of Sun Pin could not believe that the answer to his questions, about The Art of War, were as simple as they are.  Even if we read the introduction to the Art of War, we'll hear that some people have ignored it because it is too old.  How can striking your enemy where he's weakest get old?

Many, particularly on the left, think that the U.S. Constitution is outdated.  But is freedom of speech an idea that is too old to be of value anymore?

I like things that are simple.  And they are often better than what is expensive.
