Went out and did laundry last night while starting to reread John Ringo's When the Devil Dances; followed that by some minimal grocery shopping. Could not get motivated to do anything even vaguely scholastic last night, not even going out to the website where I was supposed to review educational software for the Methods Class.

Is Fidel dead? Only his brother Raul and the other insiders know for sure, but Peggy Noonan says it's high time we said good-bye to Fidelismo -and anti-Fidelismo.
