I am very pleased by the low "wrath" rating. Really I think that while I definitely have vanity issues and and am overfond of food (the conflict! the conflict!), I am very even-tempered, generous to other people, don't do mean things on purpose, and it takes a lot (probably too much!) to piss me off. And I won't apologize for being lustful!

Alas

Caleb just forwarded this to me:

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and
more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day
the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the
White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

-H.L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)

BTW, I Snopes-checked this quote, as I was feeling suspicious. You know how sometimes people make up quotes and say so-and-so writer or artist or politican said it, although they never did.

I've been skimming through an Isaac Asimov novel I just got in the mail and will probably be reading next week. Have to say, having not read Asimov in a long time, it strikes me that his prose reminds me strongly of math. It's like one big word problem! LOL. I'm not making fun of his writing; it's just that it seems so dry, like a textbook. The ideas are fascinating of course but it just seems kind of cold.
