eating with a spoon

The sun came up this morning. I brewed an adequate cup of coffee. The comfy sweater turned up under a pile of books (a really big pile of books) and I know what I need to write about today so that I can mail the chapter in tomorrow.

I'm trying to look for the positive. I conclude that a Republican House, Senate, President and Judiciary will mean that there are no excuses. Things will either improve or burn themselves out. A lot of people will suffer in the process. I'll pray that we escape another 9/11.

Words Written: zero
Lessons Graded: fifteen

Did a double take when I saw the heading. Just sayin'...

Chin up, Lem. Pessimism may be comfortable, but it's never fashionable. I have no doubt that there are people of good will and determination all over our country. We just have to do a better job of bringing them together.

Fighting the power,

Yeah, it was a Peter Gabriel kind of morning. Then I started thinking about Kenyon, and I felt better. Any country where people are willing to stand in line for 9 hours has good things going for it, whatever our "moral values."
