Inspiration

It occurs to me that among the books I’ve read, two stand out as examples of how to lead men and treat people:

Julian “Bean” Delphiki in Orson Scott Card’s Shadow of the Hegemon; and

The Lieutenant in L. Ron Hubbard’s Final Blackout

Two wonderful and prolific writers in several genres, by the way.

Drain

Today was a drain. It was a relief to go to the dentist. Her gung fu is the best.
