It's not that I have any particular words of wisdom for this DBD, but just having some words for a change seems like an incremental improvement.
As you all hear ad infinitum, my summers of hookers and blow are made possible by the womenfolk of the house departing for Vermont for a summer of genteel shenanigans at summer camp. I've always thought of the "traditional" summer camp as something more common to the northeast and midwest, probably because it was a reaction to urbanization and industrialization. For instance, a former manager in New Orleans (a native New Englander) told me that the nearest camp for his kids was in North Carolina.
So I was interested to read the Reasonable Debate on the New York Times site yesterday about the merits of sleepaway camp like this was a nationwide thing - perhaps that's just the parochial world view of the NYT at work. I was even more interested that the only person against summer camp was an ESPN writer who wants children to be put in year round school - which sounds a bit like being a wage slave to me, but apparently he's in favor of improving our global competitiveness, so there's that.
This all seems a bit "first world problems" to me, which reminds me, I need to go and disable the control for constant dehumidification on my a/c system to try and get the condensation in the bathroom and the kitchen under control.
