Worms and Viruses

Tried to blog last night but couldn't: Blogger, like much of the web, was down. Damn worm.

Students also reported not being able to access sites from Korea; naturally, they accused the school of arbitrarily blocking an entire country. As if we had some reason to do so. The adolescent mind sees institutional conspiracy everywhere, but intelligent adults know that carelessness, stupidity, and the virulent maliciousness of a few individuals with some minor skill and very little actual power easily explains most of what's wrong with the world. Still, I'm touched by the naivete on the other side of the adolescent consipracy coin: if we are the cause of all problems, we can fix what's wrong with the world, too, right?

Not much is wrong with my little world, except Darcie and the baby both woke up sick and cranky. I'm hoping it's not the flu, but it probably is; this year's flu came late, but seems to be a pretty powerful strain. Student health services has just issued their yearly warning, and kids are beginning to drop like flies. On the bright side, I get to stay home and look after them; while they sleep, I can catch up with a midmorning blog.

So. Last night's radio show was essentially uneventful, although it was so cold outside (-11 Farenheit, which is, like, a million below zero) that the studio never warmed up completely. Cold enough that the fluids in the Camry have thickened; driving to and from the station with Ginny felt like driving an old bus. This week's eclectic, jazz-and-jamband heavy playlist follows, as always; for previous Tributary playlists, check out other archived Tuesdays.
