My friend S., who has had trouble finding work, was just offered a holiday job. Yay! He's taking it, of course. It starts Nov 7 and continues until the 1st week of January.

I encountered some kind of post by "the 53%" on LinkedIn. Ugh. I can see the appeal: it must radically simplify life if you believe that, first, everybody (other than you) somehow deserves whatever bad luck they get, and, second, that the rich are hard-working, solidly virtuous folk, just like you.

I never saw people preen about paying income tax before. Talk about -- literally -- making a virtue out of a necessity.
