The great thing about the blog world is that people like me can find and learn from folks who practically ooze smarts. Borepatch is such a one. Frankly, I could link to most of the stuff he posts and never have to write an original word again but that'd be cheating. I try to pick and choose the articles I link to for their brilliance, impact or relevance. The latest from BP hits all three marks.
I wrote a while back that even though I am a pessimist by nature I am an optimist where it comes to The American People. I remain so. This post by Borepatch perfectly explains why. It is worth a moment of your time to go and read, agree with him or not.
I've been accused of being many things but being the brightest bulb in the chandelier has not been one of them. Thankfully I've got people like BP and the others you see on my blog roll to rely on.
Gives me more time for the important stuff like lifting heavy things and putting them back down again.
