Sick Day

Suddenly the flu – that calls for bedrest and orange juice. Things will be better in the morning, or the next morning, or the one after that. It’s hard to tell, but this isn’t the time for a deep dive into the news, followed by careful analysis what it all means. It can wait. It will have to wait. Sorry.

Update, Wednesday, January 25:

This is a bit more serious that it seemed – a day in the emergency room and then home, with pills and an inhaler and instructions of all sorts. This is not going well – and damn, just when things were getting interesting. Orwell’s “1984” is now the best-selling book in America – for good reason. There is much to try to understand, if possible. But that will have to wait a few more days. Sigh.

About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.

    Be well, best wishes. Your work is one of the things that keep me sane.
