The view from my desk...

... is an infinite regression.

I hope you can resist falling into the void. Me, I plan to fall into the real world for a while today and do that life-living thing I've heard so much about. But you, you're being mesmerized by Althouse Vlog #4. Only 1 minute and 16 seconds, but 100% vloggy goodness.

The microphone drops out a phrase at one point -- my fault for setting up conflicting preferences. The phrase is "cut down in the Civil War."

True story.

When I was 10 or so I saw one of those infinite regressions in a mirrored hallway, and my Dad explained the whole concept to me.

The next day when I was in school I kept daydreaming about the concept and my teacher asked me why I was so distracted. I said "I saw an infinite regression yesterday" and can't stop thinking about it.

I think she thought I was being a wiseass.

(It probably didn't help that I had as a father a physics/math genius who could spend hours explaining this stuff to me...)

You ask what we have on out computers? Obviously, the Althouse Report!

Tell me that at some point, some fiber in your being, some niggling, some slight vestige of resentment, an inkling of anger, a hesitation of discomfort, an iota of disappointment, a fraction of perturbation...

Every once in awhile crops up..

At your going to all this trouble, and not receiving so much as a dime in monetary compensation.

You wouldn't be human if you didn't feel that kind of resentment and bitterness...at least every once in awhile.

Peace, Maxine
