The New Year Is Here

And I’ve been pretty quite about it.

I spent the day Monday fulfilling my civic duty down at the County Courthouse. Jury Duty…Not my favorite way to spend the day, but I never shirk it. I even got impaneled on the first call of the day. 107 of my fellow citizens and I got to spend the afternoon being questioned by a couple of lawyers…Interesting day.

Paul Krugman linked to the following video…

The Sound of Silence was probably one of my favorite songs of that time…right up until a couple of English teachers spent two weeks on it teaching us to parse the poetic rules enclosed in the verses. Don’t get me wrong, I still like the song…It’s just every time I hear it I’m back at Pasadena High School in Sophomore English class sweating over the pop quiz to come.
