So, my Thursday started at 06:00 Mountain time in Logan Utah, and ended at 03:00 Eastern time on what other people would call Saturday.

But the roadie rule was, "It's not the next day until you've slept." This was a particularly rough travel day. Most are easier than this, where I only have to be "on" when I'm at the client site. Not this one.

Print Story Guardian goes all adequacyesque on its readership
 I was highly amused to read that the well respected mouthpiece of leftwing thought (and efficiently tax structured) newspaper "The Guardian" has decided to go "full adequacy" on it's readership.

The Guardian has announced that it's aptly named "Comment is free" section will no longer allow readers comments on articles where the topic concerns Islam, race or immigration.

Went to court today. Capital One was suing me for nearly $1,700.

Which reminds me of a joke I made up ten years ago:

Q: What's the difference between Capital One and the Mafia?
A: Nothing.

Also, Marvin Minsky, writer's jello, grandfatherhood, maybe more if I can make myself write more.
