1066, and all that.*

150 years ago the US Civil War started. 50 years ago a man first went into space.

In a completely trivial and unimportant, unrelated note, I started posting on this blog 1065 posts ago. Yeah, this makes post #1,066.

So why mention it? Oh, because I’m amused by the number. And because it is something of a poke at myself – it’s important to have perspective. As the old line goes, “after Shakespeare, why write anything?”

And yet, I can’t seem to help myself.
