“It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic is of altogether secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does things.”

“Anyone old enough to be a “senior” is old enough to know that you cannot have everything and there are real-life consequences to behaving as though you can.”

The War Between the Generations.

As an ever growing portion of the country has been saying for years, it all comes down to a sustainable budget. Nothing, not foreign policy, defense, science research, domestic programs, nothing, is safe if the overarching issue of our deficit isn’t addressed. You may not like the bipartisan (Paul Ryan/Ron Wyden) plan that’s currently being put forth, but I think (hope?) that we can all see the absolute necessity of not running up the national credit card until it melts. That doesn’t work in a personal or family budget and there are many catastrophic cautionary examples throughout history that demonstrate it won’t work on a national scale.

Wiz-War

Just played my first (sadly solo) game of Wiz-War. I purchased the game at a local game store the other day after reading many, many raves about this classic game (Fantasy Flight Gaming brought it back in a re-release after several years). Even just playing against myself I can see that it’s a game of significant depth and craziness. Lots of variability for nutty gameplay. Kind of like Mario Kart but with wizards tossing spells chaotically around. It was loads of fun.

I can’t wait to teach Sean and the crew how to play and see this thing fully armed and operational with 4 opponents. It’s wild.
