This is nuts.

If I were to write a letter to my ex-wife today, here’s what it would say. :-)

I’ve been sitting on this for a while. I sent it to a dear friend for review and thought long and hard about whether or not to send it. There are many reasons why I would not, many among them being things I shouldn’t even have to consider by my way of thinking, such as the opinion of a court, some people who are dissimilar to me by great magnitudes, elected by popular vote, and possess no greater wisdom than anyone else yet wield great power over the affairs of others, thrown about in arbitrary, haphazard fashion without meaningful oversight by experts and thoughtful people.

So basically I didn’t want to send it because I didn’t want to end up in jail again, number one, a place I didn’t belong in the first place. Number two, I didn’t want to do anything counterproductive unless absolutely necessary, meaning that if I were to have to say something potentially offensive I would want it to matter a great deal to be there, hopefully its value outweighing its offensiveness. We’ll see! πŸ™‚

If you have any thoughts, I’d appreciate your comments on this blog post or via e-mail. You can also submit voice feedback on my podcast at https://anchor.fm/hourback/.

On a related note:

I’m thinking about doing something like Into the Wild (above) but in Las Vegas. I would bring my GoPros and try to document everything in full HD, hopefully 360-degrees where permitted. I wonder what Las Vegas is like during COVID-19. Have any of you been recently?? Please tell me!
