The last two days have brought something novel in the atmosphere: A view of the Sun! We have had enough rain over the last three weeks (of which I was gone for nine days) to go from way below normal rainfall to 120 percent of normal! Good for the reservoirs; bad for our roof.
Yup. The roof leaked water in our new Addition. Time to bring out the tar. Man vs. Tin Roof.
Outdoor activities? It is impossible to stay inside after three weeks of rain.
Toe status? The second Great Toe's nail fell off. Talk about ugliness.
Computer status? Anyday now for a return of the Gateway.
And Howard Zinn passed away yesterday. I never met the man--but I've certainly appreciated his work. I can't pass by a Dunkin Donuts without thinking of the man. Why? Because Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky would meet at the local Dunkin Donuts to have coffee. The idea of these two Radicals meeting at a chain Donut Shop for coffee---blows my mind. You'd think they would pick something less corporate; something more high brow that welcomes the intellectual Uniform of Tweed Jackets. Nope. Dunkin Donuts for two of the premier People's Radicals.
I'm betting these two intellectual greats walked to the Donut Shop. I think I'll step out and get a donut and some coffee to celebrate Zinn's memory.
