Various thoughts on current events with an emphasis on politics, legal issues, sports, and whatever is on my mind. Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org; please put "blog comments" in the subject line.
One character in the book voices the sentiment that everything happens for a reason and not just in a cause/effect way. I don't think that. We can give meaning to things but the meanings aren't the reason for the event (such as a bad event).. Or, so it seems to me.
