Life Intervenes

The next column here, on what seems to be happening, and who is saying what about it, and what it all might or might not mean, will appear on Sunday evening. Life intervened. The hospitalization last week generated questions. Those questions generated visits with specialists. Those visits with specialists generated orders for tests and scans and whatnot – lots of stuff, day after day, ending Friday afternoon, maybe. That leaves no time to analyze what’s going on and write a shrewd three-thousand word column each night – these things take time. There is none, for now. But by Sunday evening…

See you then.

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.

    BRAVO- no need to rush facts and perspective. So frustrating to have “news” 24/7. Truly has harmed Journalism.

    Best wishes from one more devoted reader. We’re watching Kevin Drum going through a similar rough patch. I 🙏 you will fare as well. You make an important rtant contribution to my day, every day.
