Veteran's Day: My family went to church as usual. The afternoon was spent putting the finishing touches on one daughter's science fair project. Science is very subversive! Teach a child the scientific method and he/she will not be easily duped by silly social theories or unscientific "science" spouted by celebrities.
It has long been my observation that engineers, for example, tend to be a bit conservative because of their training. The engineer will stop and think while the mobs are grabbing pitchforks and chanting the political slogan du jour. The engineer will think three or four steps ahead while the mob just does stuff that gives them the immediate satisfaction of showing "how much they care." Then when the logical consequences of their environmental, energy, or welfare policies come home home to roost, the engineers, scientists, and business managers will do their best to fix things--things that would not have needed fixing if everyone would have stopped to think like the engineers in the first place.

Subversive activity is in full swing this morning. I got up early, baked triple chocolate brownies, and packed some in my kids' lunches. My husband then drove them to their non-government-controlled school, where they will study great books and learn to actually do math instead of just feeling good about math.
Later, I may eat a large brownie in front of a picture of Michelle Obama.
