Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

February Blogging

It's no accident February has only 28 days. It is half of *a Dickens opening: the worst of times. Specifically, it is the dregs of the calendar, the short, dismal month that connect the ass-end of Winter to Lent.

And that's in a good year.

This, my friends, is not a good year.

The worst month is now over.** Are things looking up?

Don't count on it. Unless you're looking for some time off.
