Please help us honor our fearless leader, and other matters
Programming and activity notes for quiche Moraine:
I interrupt the usual stream of “guest bloggers” for several important messages.
First, I’d like to say “Thank you so much” to Mike for his current very interesting post. And Mike, I’m going to let you finish and all, but I just wanted to interject a couple of very important items, especially of interest to our local readers.
Second, this is election day, so please don’t forget to go and vote. There are important things on the ballot today, though due to distractions at the national level, we have not really spoken of them here on Quiche Moraine. Shame on us, but even more shame on you if you don’t go to the polling place today! I believe the biggest thing going on in my polling place is a school referendum. That, and they moved the polling place from one church to a different church.
Third, I just wanted to mention that I’ll be blogging about the Go Green Expo this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Minneapolis Convention Center. There will be a number of interesting exhibits on greening up your domicile, your transportation strategy, or your business.
Fourth, Last, and Not Least, I just want you to know that our fearless leader, Editor Stephanie Zvan, is as I write this checking in to the local hospital where they will shortly knock her out and perform surgery on her. You already know about the gist of what is going on. I have had a number of other people close to me undergo similar procedures over the years, and it has often been my job to be the person saying “This is no big deal, relax, this is routine, they do this in their sleep, in fact, this early in the morning, they will be doing in their sleep” and so on and so forth. So I’m de-emphasizing the significance of it all. But I know Stephanie knows that I know that it is never insignificant to go under the knife, and it is never comfortable to be dropped on a probability chart which might look pretty good from an academic perspective but from an individual perspective requires you to be a single dot that has to land on a single spot and it may be a good spot or it may be a bad spot. And yes, I’m going to leave that previous sentence just like it is. What can I do. Our editor is not available at the moment.
So Stephanie, I love you, my thoughts will be with you this morning, and please get back in the groove soon because we can’t do this for very long without you. Mike and I will drive Quiche Moraine into the ground, Jason and the others cannot alone control the tide of crazies on my scienceblogs site, and we have other, secret projects to get to work on. Not that you don’t have time to recalibrate. You do. Don’t assume that we are standing here, arms folded, tapping our feet, rolling our eyes and glancing at our watches. Even if we are.
Get Well Soon.
