Why buying new isn't always the best answer

There was a story, years ago, that asked why getting something repaired was so much more expensive than just buying new. The answer went something like this...

That product that needs repairing was probably made on an assembly line - *this* part has to be installed before the other part because another part has to connect to it. And so on, ad infinitum. To *repair* that same item, essentially 18th century craftsmanship must be employed to disassemble it and put it back together.

While it's more economically feasible to just replace a broken item, one should really embrace the talent needed to perform the repair. Only then can one appreciate why some stuff just can't be bought for the lowest price.

Why Mitt Romney Is Speaking At The University of Utah

I figured out why Mitt Romney is speaking at the University of Utah tomorrow morning (3/3/16). Is he going to endorse a candidate? Not likely. Is he going to enter the race? Close sources say no.

The Salt Lake Tribune said "Insiders say Romney, who is no fan of Trump, will have something surprising to say."

What then will he say, and why here in Salt Lake City?

OK, I'm going out on a limb here. And this will (likely) be the last time I comment on the whole process because I'm tiring of the whole circus act.

I've lived in Utah now for thirty years, I've seen what partisan politics can do to the well-being of folks who aren't of the dominant political party and of the dominant religion (there, I said it).

Utah always votes Republican. NO MATTER WHAT. But this election cycle is different. Way different. And it has a certain demographic scared shitless. And, for all intents and purposes, they cannot say anything about it. But Mitt Romney can.

He's going to suggest that the people of the Great State of Utah parts ways with tradition and not vote straight Republican. And definitely not for Trump. Anyone but Trump.

Mark my words - you heard it here first.

Every Way You Look At It You Lose

I've never much been interested in Presidential politics until this year. And rightly so, of course, what with the current field of Republican candidates. It's laughable when one considers how all these damn debates have devolved into shouting matches. No matter who you might vote for, you'd lose....

The dialog trails off there because it would make for a great song. Too bad it was already written almost forty years ago. FORTY YEARS AGO.

In a similar vein, I created a meme-y image to go along with this epiphany. Feel free to use it as you wish - standard disclaimer: I take no credit for the lyrics.

One must wonder... did Simon and Garfunkel have some sort of sixth sense to be able to foretell the future?
