The computer gets shut off after this post. I am devoting the rest of the day to trying to finish A Theory of Justice, the classic by the late John Rawls. I consider it a scandal—an absolute scandal, I tell you—that I have not yet read the book in its entirety. There are a few other books on the scandal list, too; I seem to have a disease which makes me want to get all of the less important stuff out of the way first, before tacking the really heavy-duty, critical work. The less important stuff, of course, is undying.
