Infernal Dynamics

Gerrold's Law of Infernal Dynamics, that is. An old quote I ran across while going through some papers:

1. An object in motion will always be headed in the wrong direction.

2. An object at rest will always be in the wrong place.

3. The energy required to change either one of these states will always be more than you wish to expend, but never so much as to make the task totally impossible.

As they say, indeed.

Good, let me guess, the Republicans are #1 and the Democrats are # 2 and we have to overcome # 3.

Giles, it's not a secret, we just didn't tell you!

No, really, Pacific Views is a pretty well respected site in the 'sphere.
