  1. A very encouraging Saturday morning discussion of our political scene today and a recognition of the person that Samuel Clemens, after some 12-years of in-depth study of that history, came to his personal conclusion that Joan of Arc, illiterate, unable to read or write, possessed an extremely rare and astute mind and was a uniquely developed human being, the highest developed person in the whole history of humans on this planet, if we are to believe Mr. Clemens. As someone who knew two individuals with i.q.s of 195 and 226 concurrently in a very small-town high school in the NW but who flamed out too early, ahead of the digital world; genius through human history has long been a fascination. Joan, seemingly, was ill-prepared for her role and so young; or was she really unprepared? One notable: conversing with the youth of so-called third world nations, it soon becomes obvious they are mentally more mature than youth here. In fact, it may be the case that the more severe the environment, the earlier youth develop maturity. Life cerca 1420 AD in few ways could be compared to that of today; neither could war. The reality of hand-to-hand fighting with heavy armor, on horseback, catapults and tossed heavy rocks, use of blades and axes, in deep mud, rain, cold, personal hygiene was not known. How could a hip chick perform like she did, up to her very end?

  2. I wonder what it was like to grade Kamala Harris’ term papers in school. Would the sensation bear comparison to a root canal?

  3. Common man! “Otium, Catulle, otium tibi molestum est” not “luxus”. He’d have told you “irumabo et pedicabo” for screwing up a set text like that. Sappho would have just arched an eyebrow and murmured something about your poor wife…

  4. P.s. Nice, nuanced take on Ukraine at the end. This is Hanson the analyst! Watch out, though, Sami may take Prigozhin as a model!
