flesh-eating bacteria be damned

Toronto, 2014.07.14

I had a chat today at lunch time with someone who's recovering from a fight with a flesh-eating bacterium. It's been a hell of a trek for her, and while it's not my place to convey any of the details I will say that it's one of the most amazing stories of tough resilience I've ever heard. And what grace; when she learned what I've been up to she asked to see a copy of my dissertation once it's done. Surely there could be a million more interesting things to do when you've been given a new lease on life!

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
