No big plans, other than to not watch the results. I’ll be on call to investigate things for the Secretary of the (my) State in case I’m needed, but if not, well, I’ve voted, and there’s other work to do.

My dad wasn’t physically affectionate with either me or my brother until very late in life (his late 70s). We got there, but it took a hell of a long time. On the other hand, my mom wasn’t terribly physically affectionate, either. Just a cold family, I guess, from a physical perspective. We were more of an Read more

It was an incredibly busy morning, made better by the fact that shortly after I finished the last scoop of decent coffee in my office, the Amazonians arrived with a new bag. Read more
