Evidence the world isn’t completely going to hell

It isn’t all bad out there. There’s even grounds that the corporate sense of humor has returned, given that I saw Borders stack Anna Quindlen in its “Literature” section.

More importantly we have this fine young man, sent in by long-time reader David C. as a means of demonstrating that there is Hope For America.
A fine young man
At a glance we can see that this is a highly intelligent, undoubtedly perceptive, and uncommonly contemplative person. It is a sure bet that he is kind to animals, doesn’t smoke, eats properly, and loves his mother.

You might have missed just why this young man is so special, so I blew up a section of the picture for closer examination:
A fine new book

The book he is reading tells the whole story, doesn’t it?

  2. Bayesian prior for sel published works…not good enough for real publishing.

  3. I have that book. What a coincidence! What are the odds?

  4. Okay, the book is great. But how how do you explain the “bankee” wrapped around his legs?

    Simple, his mother is a seamstress and an inveterate quilter. And the heat is set to 62F…
