this week i

worked on the statistics textbook.

disagree with nobel laureate amartya sen's proposed revisions to america's voting system.  the electoral college cordons off nationwide recounts in close elections.  the public needs to understand how votes are counted, a fatal flaw of most decision-ranking algorithms.  switch to approval voting, leave indirect election be.

sat down for a game. i cut my deck to the queen of spades but the cards were all the same.
