ADMINISTRIVIA: Change is the only Universal constant

2015-Jan-19

Looks like I’ll be “unemployed” at the end of February.

That’s why last week and this week’s issue is and will be a little thin this week.

Working on my future plans.

Rest assured, my Jasper Jottings addiction will continue.

Laugh!

“Change is …”

“Change is NEVER good.”

“The only universal constant isn’t Pi π, or Euler’s number e, or even Pythagoras’ constant √2 — it’s change!”

(That’s a “Ferd-ism” as captured and collect by one of two my summer interns in 2012. A “disrespectful” lad with a good sense of humor. He survived my “supervision” and went on to gainful employment despite my warped advice.)

Argh!

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) on encouraging the Stazi mentality

2015-Jan-12

From the Jottings on the Vigilante Handicap Enforcers:

“Who died and left these bozos the “parking lot police”?”

The same folks who’ve revived using the “Good Citizen (or Good Student) Snitch Mentality” to enforce smoking bans. It used to be that laws were passed that were so infrequently ignored that we could have enforcement only by designated and trained police. Today we have so many stifling regulations that are so widely resented by significant portions of the populace that we’ve encouraged the Stazi mentality: if you see someone violating a regulation either report it or “enforce” it in some way yourself.

The smashed side mirror is an example of that sort of enforcement. The pregnant smoker getting shot in a parking lot is another.
