notes on government, sports and popular culture
I'm still coping with adjustments to my work and writing schedule. Basically, my normal writing time has been drastically shortened. I was getting a bit sensitive to firing off angry, hyper-caffeinated posts anyway, and I think the shortened writing periods would only exacerbate that problem.
But the fact that intelligent readers like Guarino
still check in is enough to keep me going. I'm gojng to experiment with an altered schedule this week.
That said, interesting lead to N&R wire service story in today's life section:
"No matter which route Reginald Burns takes when he drives to work each morning in Houston, he knows every doughnut shop along the way. Almost every day, he stops for a fix: a Diet Coke and six doughnuts — any kind as long as they have just emerged from the fryer."
Six doughnuts? Okay. Diet Coke? Gross.
