Marathon and misc

2012-10-20 11.54.41 To Amsterdam, for the marathon. In case you’ve been wondering why its been quiet around here. 3:55, since you ask.

I know I still haven’t written the sea ice post. But I will; and isn’t it nice that they don’t all come at once?

I’m reading Atlas Shrugged. Yes, I know Rand is a wacko. And I know CIP didn’t like the book. But I’m quite enjoying it so far (p 703), as long as I skip through the multi-page sermons. Its getting duller now she’s reached Rivendell, though.

Middle class decline: is it inevitable? (h/t: EW). Speaking of Atlas Shrugged, there’s Greece falling apart some more. Though they seem to have a different solution.

In wiki-world, Gerhard Kramm is no more, on the not unreasonable grounds that he isn’t notable.

Oh, and the Italian scientists and earthquakes thing.

    Kicked my time into the toilet….sigh.

    Less hills in Amsterdam I expect.

    [Certainly are. I couldn't find you marathon time but I did find you half -W]

    Was that time before or after the Paul Ryan Marathon Calculator?

    [Aha, I'm sub-3 on the Paul Ryan scale. Indeed, by bizarre co-incidence, 2:50-something :-) -W]

    I started Atlas Shrugged in the 60′s and always wondered if she ever wrote a book.
