“Have you seen Bill Clinton recently?”
he's very thin and looks old.”
“He's not that old though.”
“I guess being married to Hillary will do that to you.”

Years ago I blogged about an observation I had about the main difference between procedural programming and object oriented programming,
that procedural programming emphasizes actions (or “verbs”) while object oriented programming emphasizes data (or “nouns”) but there currently
exists no programming language that allows one to expand both easily.
It's not a unique observation,
but it wasn't until today that I learned it actually has a name—the expression problem.
And there's still no programming language that allows one to expand both easily at the same time.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
