Hey! Good Sunday morning to you. I hope you’re all (all 6 or 7 of you) settled in and enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning with coffee, croissants, and the Sunday newspaper. I actually don’t have any of those things in house so here at Chez Soapboxville it’s leftover pizza, a glass of Coke, and my Twitter feed. If you have coffee, croissants, and the Sunday Times feel free to share, just hang a left at the corner of opinionated and caffeinated Soapboxville is one block over.
As I read my Twitter feed this morning I saw the following headline: Super-collider team discovers new subatomic particle with a link to a story on MSNBC. This is the kind of thing that I don’t quite fully comprehend but it fascinates and inspires me anyway. Now if only I had some physicists and quantum physicists in my stable of friends so they could explain it to me. Come to think of it I need to add quite a few folks to my circle of friends. Let’s see. Hmmmm …. I could use the aforementioned physicists, a few astronomers, a constitutional scholar or two and Leo McGarry (fictional character). That’s right folks I need smart, enlightened, patient folks to explain and regale me with stories about my two favorite subjects, science and politics. I love both but lack a deeper understanding of either.
Interested physicists, scholars, and political operatives may apply in the comments below. Happy Sunday folks, I hope you too find something to fascinate and inspire you today. I think I’ll look for my copy of The Elegant Universe and give reading it another go.
