I’ve been listening to Machiavelli’s “The Price” while working on this. It’s about 500 years old, but there are still lots of parallels to the various groups that run society today. I suppose princes (and people) haven’t changed that much since then.

Also, it’s apple harvest time. Got a 1/2 peck of fresh locally grown apples. They taste great, but eating too many at once isn’t so good for your stomach.
