Wednesdays Sorrows

1a

One of the longest and most pointless arguments that constantly recycles up in the media is the question of whether or not there’s a class war going on in this country, and if so, who started it. If, for instance, anyone brings up a) the question of the widening gap between rich and poor, b) the need for a hike in the minimum wage, c) a proposal to increase taxes on the very wealthy, or d) any other issue likely to raise a reminder of how few have so much and how many have so little, the right wingers trot out their usual wounded cry that liberals are, once again, picking on the maligned and outnumbered plutocrats, and trying to instigate class warfare. They’ll talk about the “politics of envy,” and they’ll repeat the assertions that anyone who thinks that maybe the system is just a little tilted toward favoring the very wealthy is merely jealous, and they’ll base that idea on the rather foolish notion that we’d all like to be Donald Trump or Sheldon Adelson or Rush Limbaugh, or any of that repugnant tribe of obscenely wealthy trolls we are told we would like to be.

    Spent the day on top of a 15 ft stepladder, filling the gaps between the adjoining space and I.
    The adjoining space is a cabinet shop, lots of holes plugged, maybe now I can hear the stereo.
    Had big holes I filled with foam rubber from inside the other space, Matt is cool, he can’t help it he makes noise, it goes with the job.

    Has anyone here carried a 15 ft extension ladder 100 feet? twice? Hmm?

    Over 100 minutes of stick walking today. The route was downtown for errands and Swilly’s taking the usual 20 minutes. Then east to the end of Terre View, up Terre View to see the 4 sheep, 2 with long horns, and back into campus along Grimes Way seems to have taken 80 minutes; that’s too long.

    Nice day out, tho’.
