UR postponed due to BTD

UR is postponed until this Saturday due to a Sibyl-transmitted disease. (I think we'll just have to call the next one "Vector.")

I hope you all get well soon.

"Vector" - sounds like your next child will be a super villain then. Hopefully along the lines of Hank Scorpio, then when he (or she) takes over the East Coast we'll see your bwirriant pwan in action.

Why do you keep getting sick? I thought the Sib stayed at home? Are you sending her out to disease factories (day-care centers)?

If so, we'll that's what you get from places like that--sickness.

I got sick from my cousin's baby, and she's a stay at home. I think kids are actually the originators of sickness.

That should be "stay at home mom." Because that's what I meant.

Hey lookit!

It's State & DoD clashing IRT!

It's a joint report, so not much of a clash. The DoD has been colonizing many former State responsibilities:

Forgot to mention that Obama has been exceptionally non-technocratic and prone to patronage when it comes to ambassadors.

I fear State (or the Cathedral) may have actually taken over DoD.

You're a bit late to the table with that news tidbit, friend. State took over DoD in 1987 when Weinberger resigned and Carlucci took over.

I hope you are all healthy now.

Could you address a post to compare and contrast:

(in particular:
Langer readily concedes that her ideas have changed since her early career. “When I was first studying the illusion of control, I was doing it from a very rational perspective,” she says. Now, however, she says she is suspicious of the empirical approach that lies at the heart of scientific research. One of her favorite hobbyhorses is probabilistic thinking. (“You can tell me that there’s a 20 percent chance of it raining tomorrow, but tomorrow it will either rain or it won’t rain.”) )
