Apropos of, well, everything…

“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.

To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.

To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.”

— Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe


Had to abruptly leave class today just before lunch.

Not because I wanted the day off nor that I’m sick (I feel fine and I’ve loads of things I wish to do) but because Daisy received positive test results.

Not positive “good” but positive “bad”.

She has had a sore throat a few days and a cough that was medically more likely an infection, but Covid tests were requested. Test results came back positive a few days later.

Notified the instructor, filled out a form for State & CDC tracking, clocked-out, grabbed my tools and quietly left the building.

Sucks. But, do the best we can.
