PN:

I have had some querulous, some derisive, and a few speculative inquiries about the infrequency of “PN” dispatches. What up?

The collection of data continues. The rants and missives subdued. This is not a Buddha moment. More like a storage issue.

A re-think and re-group. Not done. Not scheduled. Not planned. To be continued.

A caution –

Having said that, let me continue…….

Mike Rowe is the man behind “Dirty Jobs”. He is very introspective. I’d say he is brilliant. Watch this 20 minute video entitled “War on Work”. Profound observations:

As Abraham Lincoln stated “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time”. Amen.

Facts are so much more boring than emotional furor. Witness these facts:

How about a biting analysis of the “Indian Industry” as it exists in North America? Take a read of Guy Somerset as he talks about the “Professional Indians”:
