I also need to practice patience. Most posts that I write on this blog are posted within minutes after being “done”. That’s not what I should do. Letting a post simmer for a day or two would probably improve overall quality and help me make my points more succinctly.

Kneejerk Opinions

I was going to link to this back when I heard it. But the episode had some propagation issues and I promptly forgot about it. Anyway, I got reminded about it today when talking to my mom.

I kind of wish it was aimed at the more serious listener.
