Long weekend, since I took a poorly-planned trip up to the city yesterday to watch the Fleet Week airshow from a friend's rowing club, right on the north shore of San Francisco. Problems with this included, but were not limited to:
The news has now gotten so wide-ranging that I can no longer follow things in the detail I'd like. It used to be I could track the housing/credit crash and the election by reading 30-45 minutes of news, but even just reading Washington Monthly and FiveThirtyEight for the election, and patrick.net for housing/credit, and listening to NPR, I can't track the details any more. It's a little unsettling, but also a reminder to stop, slow down what I'm doing, and pay attention to the details of what I'm doing.
