Online Dating Made This Woman a Pawn in a Global Crime Plot | WIRED:

'“My wife has been the single largest source of pain and frustration in my life,” one correspondent said. “But she has also been my largest source of joy and blessing.”

'You could make the argument that, because his wife increases both pain and joy in equal measure, these things cancel each other out and he and I come out even. But we all know this isn’t true. His life is both more difficult and more enjoyable, more complex, deeper and (why not just say it?) better than mine.'

Here's some good news:

Department of Justice Won't Stand Behind Fed Agency Support for Industrial Hog Facility | Earthjustice:

This book sounds interesting:

'In recent years, a number of talented novelists have experienced a sudden and alarming loss of faith in their chosen literary form. David Shields thinks most novels are boring and disconnected from reality. Nicole Krauss is “sick of plot and characters and scenes and climax and resolution.” Rachel Cusk has decided that conventional fiction is “fake and embarrassing.” Karl Ove Knausgaard goes even further, dismissing the entire enterprise: “Fictional writing has no value.”'

Kate Atkinson’s ‘A God in Ruins’ - NYTimes.com:

I liked Atkinson’s: Behind the Scenes at the Museum (1995).

A friend suggested I describe myself as a retired psychology professor. Consider it done. I've always been fascinated by behavior in its vast range across many animals, including humans.

Alfred Korzybski says plants are energy binders, animals are space binders, and man is a time binder. I seem to be an information binder.
What I’m doing with my life
My interests include current affairs, environmental activism, social justice, inequality, business, economics, open-source software, sustainability, biodiversity, literature, and creative writing.
I’m really good at
I bake pretty good sourdough bread. I developed my own starter from ordinary yeast I got at the grocery store. I'd use some of the dough, bakers call it the "sponge," to start successive batches without adding additional yeast. After about the third iteration the sponge had picked up bacteria from the flour that turned it the requisite sour. Tasty!
The first things people usually notice about me
As an introvert, I'm not particularly showy, but perhaps worth getting to know anyway. Here an excellent article on the topic. Have a look; you might be an introvert too.

Caring for Your Introvert
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Obligatory reading: The New York Times and The Atlantic. I'm about to add The New Yorker to the list, but it's really hard to find the time to read.

Reading Downton Abbey: The Complete Scripts: Season Two by Julian Fellowes. He's telling a compelling story.

Re: movies, I watched The Grand Budapest Hotel, and liked it a lot. But I usually watch movies long after they're released. More recently, To Be Or Not To Be (1942).

I like dark comedy, e.g., Keeping Mum (2005).

I'm pretty omnivorous, but maybe lean a little toward Thai, Mexican, and Chinese food.
