Late Life Crisis - June 2021

There is word that Oxford University is considering phasing out imperial measurements as part of its efforts to decolonise its maths, physics and life sciences faculties. So should I respond by decolonising my underpants drawer? A quick recce shows measurements in both inches and centimetres. Is that acceptable? Possibly not  - every time I put on a pair of pants I might feel drawn to observe the inches measurements and lapse into a regression that would count as minor thought crime.

Late Life Crisis - February 2021

Beginning of the month. I am missing Trump. I am missing that there was always something to write about him. With the new incumbent, there is just not the same buzz in speculating on whether the President enjoyed a refreshing afternoon nap.
