#6168: Well, that's a lot better, isn't it?

It's been a week since I started having the scratchy throat. I feel better today, and what's more, I found myself happy to be at work, happy to be doing my job.

The weather? Not so great, but it didn't bother me, either. Snow squalls almost all day, and it was still flurrying as I left work for the evening. WTF, who cares? It'll be warm outside--too warm!--soon enough.

Harvey is charitably referred to as "Shit City" and I doubt that it's going to get better soon. Going into Harvey is about as nerve-wracking as driving through some neighborhoods on Chicago's south side, and for the same reasons. It's a reliably Democrat suburb of a Democrat machine city in a Democrat machine county.

Cold medicine can screw you up, that's certain. One night last week (I think it was Wednesday night) I had a dose of generic NyQuil, and that crap knocked me down, all right.

    Today I watched the Jeep blow its taillight fuse. It blew when I went home for lunch; I drove back to work with no taillights. Before leaving the…
