Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Job Hunting in the Cosmic Disorder

Strange things often happen when I go to job interviews.

I was on my way to interview for a VISTA organizing job when Reagan was shot.

I was headed to a restaurant to interview for a cooking position when the Towers came down.

Today I was headed to an interview for a painting job when the shooting at Reynolds High happened.

A real reminder of how life persists when the madness goes down, which it does every day somewhere.

Would any of it have happened if I didn't need a job?
