The almost certain reality is that we’ll end up with a big (and perhaps even a rapidly-expanding) government no matter who gets elected. People seem to forget that this time four years ago, George W. Bush was winding down one of the most activist, expensive, intrusive presidencies in history, an eight-year period that saw a massive expansion in the size of the federal government.
To summarize, the committee fails to recognize any indication that Dr. Jones is even remotely proficient when it comes to archaeological scholarship and practice.

Two year dischargiversary

Two years ago today (9/24/10) I was discharged from Mt. Sinai after completing my in-patient rehab there, following my spinal tumor removal. So today marks two full years of outpatient rehab, my own recovery attempts, various PT visits, tons of support from friends and family, and so on.

Some super lazy math shows that I’ve probably walked ~5000 miles since then. I’ve lost fifty pounds. I’ve gained one wife and one baby. I’ve burned through about ten pairs of sneakers. I live in a new city.

Good stuff.
