All week, I’ve tried to think of something to say that hasn’t been said, dozens of times before – most of it by better minds than mine. I’ve come up blank.
I have a fair grasp of history, but tend to get lost in the individual histories of those who lived through it, since we never seem to learn its lessons, anyway. Economics never appears to be what economists say it is and finance is a deep and unsolvable mystery to me. I vote, but have no sense that it does any good and no interest in the game of politics. I’ve never excelled at sports. I seem to have only one small gift, that of telling stories from my own unique perspective. So, here is one such story:

“Ah. Inevitable, I suppose. I never should have given them opposable thumbs.”
