Glaciers

I seem to be coming down with my second cold in the last month. I dislike being sick, but there's not a whole lot I can do about it at this point.

On Sunday, the friend who has been giving me rides to church was asking various kinds of economic questions on the way home, and invited me over to continue the discussion. Apparently his son is in the Model UN program in High School, and he wanted help understanding some of the issued being discussed. We had a wide-ranging discussion for several hours before he brought me back, so I missed a Sunday update.

Then, Monday, the library was closed for President's day. I'm not sure what the point is in having a holiday if there aren't any public events associated with it; besides a President's day sale at the local car dealership, that is.

Someone commented to me that my approach to finding work and employment is definitely not the usual one...he thought I was being slow and thorough about it.
That's a definitely more insightful and rather more charitable opinion than I'm used to hearing. I'd even call my pace glacial, and I'd be happier if I could speed it up without abandoning it entirely. I get weary of playing
Invictus.

Lately I've been rereading David Drakes's Isle series. I've also encountered Tamora Pierce, whose work is classified as young adult, but it's still pretty good. I may mention others from time to time.

I also mean to extend some of my comments on the connections between government and economics, but I'll have to save that for later.
