“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Daytime blues

Have to be up during "normal" human hours for another week of instructing at the range... so it's that balance of something I like doing (shooting and teaching) vs. something I despise (being awake before noon) - after five years of midnight shift it's always hard to make the switch... It's hard for me to get to sleep before one am, no matter how tired I am or how early I have to be up...

Plus I'm juggling my schoolwork (which is approaching the level of "caught up" if not quite at "I'm happy with".

Then finals next week along with a training class...

Can anyone see why I'll be happy for May to show up?

Fortunately, I have a good wife who supports me through all of this, and two children who are happy to see daddy even when he's tired and they're fussy...

It does make a difference.
