A clever Man

One night, 22 years ago, Leonard Bernstein showed up at Harvard in a cape and said that if 15 students and 2 bottles of Scotch were present, he would speak.

He did, and you should read it.

It will take a little time, but it's fascinating and oddly prescient.

Ooooooo Shiny..

I will willingly admit that I am a trekker. Despite Voyager and even Enterprise. So when I saw these items I got excited. Wall socket plate covers. Sweet, and pretty cheap over at

The not fun part...

This was what I did the day after the election. The tiny Wellington Obama for Ohio office needed to be cleaned out and I found myself scraping this window for 2 hours on an unseasonably warm day.

It was in short, actual work. Something I try to avoid whenever I can.

It was, I suppose a kind of... allegory? A symbol of what's to come. For all the effort to get a new President, when the election is over, the REAL work begins.
