Another sunrise shot from the Embarcadero. 

Blogging. Yes, will blog again, I promise you, I promise myself. Schedule has undergone some huge shifts that has thrown me off my rhythm for the time being. This will pass.
Until then, if you read one article this week, read this one. A taste:
The history of the United States can be read as one such virtuous circle. But as the story of Venice shows, virtuous circles can be broken. Elites that have prospered from inclusive systems can be tempted to pull up the ladder they climbed to the top. Eventually, their societies become extractive and their economies languish. 
That was the future predicted by Karl Marx, who wrote that capitalism contained the seeds of its own destruction. And it is the danger America faces today, as the 1 percent pulls away from everyone else and pursues an economic, political and social agenda that will increase that gap even further — ultimately destroying the open system that made America rich and allowed its 1 percent to thrive in the first place.
Vote early, vote often, and vote accordingly.
