Some quick points for the afternoon:
I'm reading Dan Gardner's Risk
at the moment. I've got a sense that I'm going to have to give this book on how we try, succeed and fail at making sense of risk and figuring out what to fear at what points in time...well, it's going to need at least three re-readings to make sure that I understand it all. Possibly more. Based on Gardner's work as an Ottawa Citizen columnist, I also suspect that it'll be worth whatever effort's necessary.
The main emotion this story on the second moose to die in the Ottawa region in the last two weeks or so
leaves me with is just plain sadness. I've only seen live moose maybe twice in my life so far, most of the sightings happening in Ottawa if you can believe it. "Sense of wonder moment" did not begin to cover either of those occasions. We need "moose corridors" in this town!
