    I could type more, but suffice it to say, I'm more glad to have reached retirement.

    a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

      That's accurate, but does not describe managers.

          Anchorage has a large inflated dome with a full size soccer field and a six lane track. The field can be played and is marked as a full field, divided into three thirds or a 2/3rds size with a 1/3rd size field for the youngest age groups. The 2/3rds and 1/3rds setup was used for over decade in this youth league, worked perfectly.

          This year? Clubs want to make more money so they switch to dividing it into two fields and use cones for markings. It’s the worst f-ing setup I’ve ever seen, nobody knew what the markings were, even me. I already told the assignor that I’m out. Not enough money to deal with this BS.
          Woof. Screw that. Basically a field full of rakes and you're sideshow bob

                It makes me happy that this was the first guess because it was mine too. But you're about 4,000 miles off and about 9 years difference.

                  Had a coach last night say “they’re encroaching into the penalty area on the goal kicks!” I replied “I don’t even know where the penalty area is!”

                  • I hear ya on avoiding a field that isn't close to being properly marked... You have a legit out here. Hopefully your assignor will back you and not just undercut everyone by putting a body out there.

                        Bingo. Lincoln was way, way more pro labor than I could have imagined

                          He was also a lot more racist than is ever taught in our schools (though not out of line with other whites at the time). Still, he's an interesting study in how a politician's views might evolve over the years, assuming they have the braincells. He went from containment of slavery and a full-throated endorsement of early eugenics and race separatism in 1858, to abolition in 1863, to (paraphrasing) "we should enfranchise the educated and veteran blacks" in April 1865 about 3 days before Booth shot him.

                          Today we'd cynically call him a triangulating Clintonista, sticking his finger in the air to test the political winds before making a statement.

                            He was way ahead of his time relative to the average educated man, let alone the average yokel. He acknowledged blacks as human beings. His racism was paternalistic, believing that people subjected to slavery would be unable to function as equals in civil society the way someone raised in low gravity would be unable to compete athletically because their muscles were atrophied. If he believed race was a thing and that African-descendants would do better in Africa that was some misplaced Darwinism of the Herbert Spencer variety. He was no doubt guilty of a well-meaning albeit biased attempt to work for human flourishing regardless of race. God knows what he said about the Irish.

                            • Yesterday: "Technical Dress Rehearsal" at a newly opening practice should have taken 2 hours, but due to abysmal planning on the ops side, it took us all day.

                              Today: portals are slow as dog****, and just as we get into fixing them, someone forgot to update a cert and e-prescribing controlled substances stops working. In the process of looking into that they note that the main controlling certificate for the entire EHR is set to expire later today.

                              Meanwhile, I'm told to run a mini project by Wednesday to message about 5000 patients about a new payment plan system, using tools that are actively off (and thus, need to be turned on), and a method that our non-Epic-knowledgeable upper management prefers but isn't a good process at all if you know Epic at any depth.





                              Thursday's interview better go well.
