Beware of Discovering the Truth 

Gosh, Latin American studies are so dead. I read stuff published within the last 3 years, and there’s nothing but the same tired old ideas I was taught 20 years ago as an undergrad based on the sources from the 1970s.

Nothing is sadder than a field of knowledge that has discovered THE TRUTH and has nothing else to do but endlessly repeat it. 

The Reliability of Bunnies

What I love about our area is how reliable our local bunnies are. 

Whenever Klara begins to get cranky or uncooperative, I tell her, “Let’s go outside and look at bunnies!” She’s big enough to understand that bunnies are fun, so she’s always happy to go look at them. And bunnies have never let me down. They are always there when we come out. They let us come very close, and Klara is so cute when she tries to be as quiet as possible to avoid scaring them.
