Hello, Professor. Long time reader, first time commenter. My mother introduced me to your blog several years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since. I’ve greatly enjoyed your appearances on MSNBC, as well. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your efforts to balance the “WTF?!?” posts with light-hearted content like Bunny Team 6. As important and substantive as your topical posts always are, your unique ability to temper the outrageous reality of our devolving democracy with humor is truly appreciated.
On a completely unrelated note, if you ever decide to redesign your blog, I’d be happy to help (building WordPress sites & blogs is my profession).
It may not seem fair, but your body has a much easier time accepting a higher set point. Its no secret that ascetics and monks would often see visions, revelations, etc. Once you have the plan you need to buy all the materials.
