About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

Chilling out after taking my recertification exam. I could use some company. Anyone around?

Saturday, June 25th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

"Judases, each one thrice worse than Judas!

Richard II, Act III, Scene 2, Line 132.


I'm glad to see that the pants-suits for which Hillary Clinton is notable have gone from being objects of derision to objects of affection. They are probably the least-important of her many attributes, but it's gratifying to see people talking about them in a positive way now.

"Fiend! Most credulous fool, egregious murderer, thief,
any thing that's due to all the villains past,
in being, to come!"

Cymbeline, Act V, Scene 5, Lines 210-212.

Why did the Rebel Alliance blow up the Death Star? The Death Star didn't destroy Alderaan.

It was the Empire. The Empire destroyed Alderaan. The Death Star was just a tool. A tool. Like a hammer. Or a T-square.

The Empire needed the Death Star for home defense. They wanted to be able to protect themselves in case the Rebel Alliance broke into the Empire's house some night.

A tool. That's all the Death Star was.

The Rebel Alliance went and ruined it for all law-abiding Death Star-owners.

What kind of weak-ass, pathetic, wimpy, cowardly, quivering mass of worthlessness needs an AR-15

for "home defense"?

Grow some gonads, Rambo-wanna-bees...

Question for followers of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day. (All three of you...) :

Does anyone ever look up the quotes I post to see if I got the Act/Scene/Line attribution correct?

Just curious...

Saturday, June 11th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

"You shall be welcome, madam..."

Love's Labour's Lost, Act II, Scene 1, Line 94.

I'm reading a book on clinical medicine case studies.

It's a lot more interesting that my recertification study manual, which is as dry as a month-old bagel.

Three weeks until my exam. Reading these case studies gives me a lot of confidence. Most of the time, I can spot the diagnosis and predict the next step in evaluation and treatment. The times when I'm wrong serve as a good, and often exciting, learning opportunity.

Saturday, June 4th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

"Cassius is no more..."

Julius Caesar, Act V, Scene 3, Line 60.
