Sorry for the slow post

Sorry for the slow post pace yesterday, but I wrote (what I think were) a couple of real quality pieces and wanted people to see those easily, rather than scrolling through the usual long collection of notes, asides, and bad gags.

I promise to get back to being funny and useless today. While I try to wake up with a seriously powerful cup of Starbuck’s Yukon Blend and catch up with the headlines, why don’t you scroll down to “Congruent Forces” and then past that to “Today’s Random Geopolitical Thought.” I promise neither one is too heavy for before lunch.
