"People soon get tired of things that aren’t boring, but not of what is boring."

From "Kafka on the Shore" by Haruki Murakami:I keep on listening to the sonata. “What do you think? Kind of boring?” he asks. “Kind of,” I admit. “You can appreciate Schubert if you train yourself. I was the same way when I first listened to him—it bored me silly. It’s only natural for someone your age. In time you’ll appreciate it. People soon get tired of things that aren’t boring, but not of what is boring. Go figure. For me, I might have the leisure to be bored, but not to grow tired of some...

Academic highlight: The risks of Supreme Court term limits

Suzanna Sherry is Herman O. Loewenstein Chair in Law at Vanderbilt Law School. Christopher Sundby is earning a joint JD/PhD in law and neuroscience at Vanderbilt University. Should we impose term limits on Supreme Court justices? Many people, of varying political views, have suggested that we should.

I guess I'm supposed to stop pretending.

Maybe this is the beginning of the end of Trump derangement syndrome.Those who are coming to terms with the wrongness of their belief in the Russia collusion may take refuge in the idea that the other side is delusional.ADDED: One way to deal with the collapse of the big Russia hoax is to switch to all the many things, the "multiple fronts."
