Socrates to the Rescue

I made a huge mistake at work, involving a misunderstanding of economic research. I've been covering this for decades now and I still make beginner's mistakes. All I know is that I know nothing. Thank you, Socrates.

I feel I should stop blogging about grand things like the economy and foreign policy. No one cares, anyway, and who am I to say anything?

So instead I'll crawl back into my personal philosphical corner. No one cares about that, either, but I can at least clarify things to myself. I don't talk out loud; I write.

Compared to me, you do know a lot about economic stuff... but mostly, I like to read the philosophical. :)

Don't be so hard on yourself. Come over for a grilled steak, a glass of wine, a massage - life is for living.

Errare humanum est, sed perseverare diabolicum.

Philosophy is as (or even more) "grand" as economics or foreign policy. To study philosophy is to learn how to die, so...

I will outbid on anonymous: come here for good cook, a bottle of wine, and euh oui, soit, un massage...
