A recent email exchange with the noontime running boyz, a couple of them being rather Republican in their politics, just prior to my surgery:
This week I will be teleworking on Wed rather than Tues so I can attend a training session on Unauthorized Commitments.
Said training is tomorrow 1100-noon, so I'll just pass on running at midday. I might go out in the AM if I can summon some motivation.
I asked a Republican friend how I could get motivated. He said "Cut taxes for the rich and let the free market fix it."
Anyway, I probably won't see you all this week. My surgeries are on Thurs, and I expect to be out 2-4 weeks. I'll email when I know more.
