“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

The Last Shutdown

I recall it, as it forced me to be stranded in the UK waiting for the embassy to open. I was right in the middle of my green card application.

As we all know Newt Gingrich's ill advised hissy fit backfired and I was forced to have a reasonably nice time in my birth country, not teaching.
