“A principal rule for writers, and especially those who want to describe their own sensations, is not to believe that their doing so indicates they possess a special disposition of nature in this respect.

I might give myself arthritis of the finger by how often I'm clicking "refresh" as the election results come in. Looking good so far.

This is awesome. I hope this becomes the norm in urban areas.

All food should be free 😁
