I’m cleaning up my workspace today, which always leads to random meanderings. Come along and puzzle with me:
- How could Paul Ryan’s budget plan have neglected to note the cost savings Congressmen and -women could achieve by giving themselves a cut in salary?
- Since Africa has so much difficulty with abusive male rulers, why don’t the various countries vote women into the top positions?
- According to Time magazine (April 25), 27% of press releases issued by U.S. senators between 2005 and 2007 consisted of partisan taunting. How come we elect people who act like kindergartens?
- In discussing the overrated book (in my opinion) Eat, Pray, Love, Sandip Roy said, “I couldn’t help wondering, where do those people in Indonesia and India go away to when they lose their passion, spark and faith? I don’t think they come to Manhattan. I wonder if there could be an exchange program for the passion-deprived, a sort of global spark-swap.” Yeah. What do you say?
- Just read a startling figure: 33% of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year winds up lost or wasted.
- On June 21–first day of summer and longest day of the year–every national park will offer free admission. Yippee! Go have fun… for free.
Okay, enough ruminating. Back to work!
When you’re an orthodox worrier, some days are worse than others.
