Challenging day in the classroom today, and from there I went to Mrs. K’s house, where she had the news on. I got to see it twice, in a fashion, because her closed-captioning is about 5 seconds behind the broadcast. Anyway, it was a depressing news day, and by the time “Wheel of Fortune” came on, I was feeling generally unimpressed with human beings, and particularly Americans.

You’ve got one comment to give me some good news, something that will restore my faith in the human race. Ready . . . begin.
