This Pretty Much Nails It

I am 48 years old. I can not recall a more disastrous start to a Presidency. Even Carter didn't start off this bad, and that is saying something.

Our Fearless Leader may as well just start wearing size 51 shoes and a red nose.

More Pen Nerdiness

Below is a comparison of two pens. The Pigma Micron that I had been using and my shiny new Waterford Marquis. It's moderately unfair as the Micron puts down a very fine line and the Waterford is a medium nib. But when I use a medium point on ballpoints or felt tips I'm utterly illegible.
