Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Thorstein Veblen, born in 1857. He was an economic and social philosopher who, on the one hand, correctly saw that land ownership was a completely nonproductive activity, but on the other hand, was in a fog as to what to do about it.
Yesterday our church celebrated a Great Maryland Food Bank Experience. Some charitable society delivered a huge truckload of fresh fruits and vegetables to the front portico of the parish hall and we offered it for free to all the homeless people of the county.
My participation consisted of donating the use of two sawhorses and taping signs to them to help in directing traffic, and then standing by to help move tables around and whatever else needed to happen.
Everything was gone in about 45 minutes.
We didn't check on the true status of the supposed homelessness of everybody, but it was pretty obvious from the way they dressed and whatnot that they were either desperately poor or putting on an awful good show of pretending to be.
And so today looks like it's gonna be another great day for nothing to happen.
Happy Nothing Happening!
