Marmots Come out of the Sky, redux

I wrote my first few drafts of this post with various spins on tonight's presidential candidate debate. I started with my "gee, both guys are good debaters" to my lawyerly "debate points I could award". I went on to my "longing for social and fiscal pragmatic moderation", and then redrafted yet again into my customary "monetarism and me" spiel. I complimented both men, and damned both by faint praise.

Then I tried something else. I used my "block" function to "block" my entire political paragraph. Then I hit the "delete" key.

During the debate, we ate heated up frozen pizza. We watched, enrapt, for ninety minutes.

After the debate, we watched Yes perform its 35th Anniversary Concert on PBS. I loved and love progressive rock, although Yes was not my favorite of those bands. I did like the bluesy version of "Roundabout", and the way that Jon Anderson can still hit most of the high notes.

Right now, though, I'm thinking about home-made chocolate chip cookies, and how good they tasted when they first came out of the oven, bubbling hot on a cookie sheet. I had a happy childhood.
