Good morning readers. I’m obliged you came for a visit and read.
I’m going to start this morning by telling you something you ought to know already, but mightn’t:
Sometimes I take myself a lot more seriously than is justified by my history of being ‘right’ compared to my history of being ‘wrong’. People who’ve known me forever are acutely aware of this. The terms, ‘alarmist‘ and ‘melodramatic‘ have occasionally been used with brutal accuracy by people in a position to arrive at informed judgements.
Keep in mind I’m the guy who dumped a second career within a couple of years of being able to draw a hefty retirement check because I believed so thoroughly Y2K was going to happen, leading eventually to my current situation. Keep in mind I also spent a lot of years climbing and unclimbing mountains searching for a lost gold mine I believed I’d find.
And keep in mind I don’t regret any of it.
So with all that in mind, I think those of you who read my ‘indefinite detention’ posts of the past few days would be well advised to examine other opinions, even though I still believe I’m generally right. My believing it shouldn’t carry any weight for you.
Here’s another viewpoint offering up a mitigated set of possibilities regarding the same situation and the activities leading to it:
