Such Subtle Sapience!

I read an interesting statistic in the "Korea Herald" for Monday June 27th (2022):

"Majority of Americans hold Trump culpable for 1/6 riot."

I wonder who is held responsible for the other 5/6.

It knocked some sense into this hee-yar boy's haid!

About a week ago, I fell out of bed. I don't know I did it, but the feat must have been a magnificent acrobatic one, for I met the floor in a full frontal position -- as though I'd been dropped from heaven face-first into the arms a lovely lass, except that I'd hit the floor instead. My wife jumped out of bed in alarm. I groaned, "That really hurt." I had a bump on  my head and something like a scratch on the bump and stuff that felt like blood on the scratch, and something like a crust forming on the blood. Kind of like that old song that starts out with a hole in the bottom of the sea. From there, it's to infinity, and beyond!

And oddly enough, for about week from that accident, my Parkinson's symptoms were gone!

I called it "my little miracle."

But it went away.

"Thanks a lot, God. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Indian-giver be the name of the Lord."

What do you call the actions of the male offspring of a forest, given that the offspring have betrayed the forest through those actions?

Taking Responsability

In his new book on teaching, Kevin Kim draws attention to me and my influence, and he thanks me for my insights into homeschooling. In private, he says that my ideas can be found scattered throughout the book.

In other words, if the book fails, well, it was mostly Jeff's stupid stuff anyway.
