The "efficient destiny" theory in economics includes among its predictions that only unattractive people will end up in radio in a world that also includes TV. This part of the theory has recently received its death blow, however, as the ever-incandescent Tonya has started doing radio. I am trying to figure out how to finagle my way into a guest spot onto her show. Anyone who has ideas for show topics on which I can be a suitable guest--keep in mind, I'm willing to make stuff up and pretend to be someone else if that's what it takes--should let me know.
Meanwhile, the "Second Law of Thermodorotha" states that Dorotha at rest tends to stay at rest. In defiance of physicists and nanotechnicians worldwide, however, Dorotha has recently started a real, live, stay-there-for-prescheduled-hours full-time job (which, it bears admitting, is something the proprietor of this blog has never done). What's more, she appears to be enjoying it: she was spotted this weekend handing out balloons for her job by someone who reported that she looked "together" and even, hold on to your monitors, "happy." Which itself is further evidence for a different theory that has always seemed to me like a supernatural belief but yet has also received empirical confirmation over and over again: on the whole, things tend to work out.
