Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Good Life

Yesterday, the Most Glorious and Thoughtful Wife and I did major work in the yard.  It was hot, but not hot like it is around the rest of the country. At the end of the day, we had a clean garage, some newly planted plants and a retaining wall mostly finished.

After a shower and a nap, we drove to a "surprise date" where she took me out to Ibiza in New Haven.  We had a simply fantastic meal.  Different ceviches, she had duck, I had rabbit.  I had been hoping to go to Ibiza for a few years now and it was worth the wait.  New Haven was bustling and lively, a far cry from the war zone it was when I toured Yale over 25 years ago.

That was a good day.
