A Humbling Day
Yesterday's presidential election results surprised me. I am humbled to confess that I lack the slightest knowledge or intuition of the workings of American politics.
This year I have already been humbled by my clear lack of understanding of international relations, the Federal Reserve, the stock market, and the principles of bicycle mechanics. (I also do not understand women. But, in this case, I have never been foolish enough to assume that I could.)
