I have stopped following the news and am concentrating on my own intellectual, professional, financial, and personal advancement. I have new hair (evidence provided below), an ambitious cooking agenda for the weekend, a stack of exams I’m really looking forward to grading, and a pile of books freshly delivered by interlibrary loan.
If only people got out of my face with their attempts to congratulate me with the Biden win. I don’t want to exclude them from my life or stop being friends. I don’t want to convert anybody or morally improve them. I just want to be left alone.
