- For part of this day I slipped back into an old habit of paying too much attention to the "news" of the day. Thankfully I caught myself before wasting too many hours. With good reading material at hand, good weather outside, plenty of chess work to do, and college basketball in full swing, Lord knows there are better ways to spend my time than listening to the crisis preachers of "doom."
