Moving Day

I'm moving to a new laptop today, so things are a little hectic down here. It's a cheap, low-end Lenovo with a terrific keyboard but I'm not wholly convinced that the screen resolution is going to work for me. We'll see, but the fact that a device like this is available, new, in the sub-$300 range is kind of staggering to an old-timer like me.

I let myself get caught up in a discussion of the use of rape scenes on the televised version of Game of Thrones and it put me a bit off my game. I wrote a long, long post on the subject, briefly posted it, and decided that I'd like to sleep on it a bit before deciding whether or not to re-publish it.  We'll see. I think I make some good points, but I'm not sure I make the right points, if that makes sense. I debated the specific arguments instead of the whole premise, whether GoT really needs all of these rapes.

Anyway, thank you for your concern about my father. He's been doing well lately and I don't think he's just putting on a brave face. I hope all of you in the U.S had a peaceful Memorial Day weekend.
