The rain has gone, the sun is shining and I'm very pleased with the way things are now. Well, mostly pleased anyway. There's something about sitting in the sun...
Now what to blog about? Apparently Congress is still out of session. And the President is still on vacation? He deserves time off like anyone else. Noticed the glee the pollsters have displayed in reporting his sinking numbers. Well, the new has worn off now. What else did anyone expect? Did anyone actually believe one man could move the mountains and Congress that quickly? Did anyone truly believe the special interests would step aside? And who believed that politicians didn't want to be re-elected? Time for a reality check. This is politics, politics 101 as a matter of fact. Not sure if there's a 201 level or not. Campaigns start the moment the polls close from the last election cycle. Can living that life be that good? Apparently it is.
Been reading some short stuff from a guy named Gunter Grass. Yes, there's supposed to be a punctuation thingy over the "u". Too much trouble to look for it and figure out how to place it. Anyway, sounds like he could use some mood elevators most of the time. Maybe his life history caused that sort of outlook on life in general. But it has gotten him some awards including a Nobel for literature. Reminds me of Hemingway in some ways. I'll continue to read through the book I've got despite what I've said. I like the way he puts thoughts together.
Here's something I didn't know until just recently. Touch pad type mice (mouses?) are lousy for gaming that requires good reaction times and coordination. Haven't decided if I should dig out the old style mouse or just dump the game. If I dump the game I won't have to find some other excuse for not being able to beat it. Yeah, that sounds about right. It's a design oversight. Not some geezerly eye-hand coordination problem. Works for me.
