Top of the world
Or the roof anyway. Somehow I managed to buy a house withe 2 fireplaces and 0 ways to close the flue. Another task for the pile I suppose. For those keeping score at home, I still have not climbed the tree that overhangs the house (it’s the one in the shot)
Thoughts working their way out
Col Lang‘s definition of a neocon as one who “believes in a homogeneous future” has been lurking in the back of my mind for the past few days. It’s one of those aphorisms that change entire viewpoints just a bit, just like Thomas Sowell’s notion of the constrained vs the unconstrained view of human nature.
More thoughts later.

For some people the most pleasant sound is an echo
It’s easy to make fun of global do-gooders, eager to spend other people’s money. And that’s what I like about it; it’s easy. Check out McCartney’s Estranged Wife Berates Rich
Mills McCartney said she was reluctantly obliged to befriend the world’s wealthy because that was the only way to maximize her power as an agent for change.
“Sadly, you have to mix at a certain level of people to raise the level of funds you need to bring about the greater good,” she said. “Because people are very snobby. These people who have lots of money, they’re either snobby or they’re stingy. If you have lots of money, you have to be stingy — because why would you want that amount of money?”
She also compared herself to human rights crusaders down through the ages, suggesting they all had been victimized for their beliefs.
“If you look at every single person in the history of the world who has tried to make a difference, you’ll find a very long section of their lives where they were treated horrifically by the government or by the media,” she said.
I can’t think of anything funnier than what she actually said.

So, I take a different route home from running a quick errand in the new neighborhood, and I discover that there is a numbered, named, and unpaved road in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Really strange…
