Day 2 of jury duty, and I'm wearing wool socks and had a chance to grab some actual food from the cafeteria this morning.  Which means that my Oliver Twist impersonation has been reduced down to: "Please, sir, I want some more Wi-fi."

Let the games begin.

Substantive anecdote of the day: All this talk about orphans reminds me of a story a friend of mine told me about when she lived in Texas.  For some reason, she was at a meeting of the Texas State legislature focused on allowing gay people to adopt children.  One of the legislators was against the measure and said he thought the state should put kids in an orphanage rather than let gay people adopt.  My friend lost it: "An orphanage?!?!  You're a member of the state legislature and you don't even know that we don't have orphanages anymore?!?!?".  Apparently, self-righteous certitude doesn't equal competence in the field of governance.

Tragically hilarious.

Hm! Never thought of it, but yeah -- we've switched over to foster care, now, haven't we?
