Re: And with that...

I've gotten quite a few messages and emails - and thank you for them. They have been very thoughtful and very much appreciated. No, I don't think I'm coming back. My life has been taking me away from here anyway, though there have been times (like the divorce I'm facing now) that I really needed you...

Re: Intellectual thread for Gerien

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! It feels as if everyone has told bankers where to get off in the past couple of years. That’s certainly the case with a letter written by Cambridge University, though this time it’s not a criticism of irresponsible lending and investment. Instead Britain’s banks have been told to g...

Re: I'm a (rental) dad.

The rental ended today. Ruben's sister got a studio apartment funded in part by the city. Building is only for young mothers. They just moved everything out.

I'm really going to miss that kid.

(But at least we get to be the spoiling-type uncles now.)
