So I'm on twitter. I'm not terribly happy about it, but I've always been compulsively drawn to goofy crap like this. So now, if you add me on twitter you can find out that I've just given myself a pedicure, changed the light bulb in my refrigerator, or finished carrying the recycling to the curb. Won't your life be complete now? On the upside, the next time I'm being chased through Chinatown by international art thieves intent on executing me, I can whip out my cell phone and send off a text msg to twitter that says "help I'm being chased through Chinatown by international art thieves intent on executing me" and multiple twitter savvy rescuers will suddenly appear to save the day. I'll rest better with that trick up my sleeve.twitter.com/angstrom

Prudence. It's an underrated concept. I used to mock George Bush "the First" as a doofus for his seemingly incessant obeisance to this very simple idea: before you go into something, know how you're going to get out. In retrospect, what I wrote off as excuse-making now seems visionary. And as I've gotten older I've found myself applying the concept in many and varied situations. Sure, sometimes I probably end up looking like a doofus a la "George the First". But I've come to accept that inevitability as fair commerce for never looking like a doofus a la "George the Second".
