Rossow on Self-Control :
A person who is afflicted with a temper, but controls it on all but rare_and
righteous_occasions, is better fitted for leadership than the person who, due
to colorlessness of personality or a vapid disposition, is incapable of
losing his temper. A controlled temper makes for power; an uncontrolled

CNBC comment : Sen Mitch McConnel : In the Senate , everyone`s a King .
Saturday , I got to the closest thing to a Rave I`ve ever been to .
At the Webbitown event wednesday Judith Levitt invited me to the
event at the "Downtown Bar" on the quaint stretch of Pearl St near
Maiden Lane . I had happened to stop in , just to check it out , the
evening before when it was totally drab and dead . Saturday it was a
costume fund raiser for a local auxillary of the http://www.burningman.com/
crowd -- mainly a bunch of white freaks into fluorescence and body paint
and video graphics . The walls were draped in mainly metalic fabrics and
Judith`s art decorated the ground floor party space .
I followed a crowd of near a 100 over to the east river for a
display of fire eating and spinning . The most impressive spinners were a
petite female in a bikini and alien bugeyed head spinning the flames on
chains even between her legs , and a guy , fully dressed , who after a
number of attempts and adjustments where he ended up sitting on it ,
managed to bounce high enough to swing the chain entirely under his body
while lying down , face up . The bulk of the crowd began heading back to
the bar after a NYPD car started hanging around . They didn't interfere
tho , at least as long as I stayed .
It turns out that Judy and a bunch of the other people involved in the
party had first met at my CoSy MidWinter Party with Bernd Naber .

/ OF SAYING "SLOW DOWN" /
My APL bud , big Bob Hoekstra , in from England , crashed in the
42 Peck Slip office saturday night before the 2001 APL conference at Yale
the week before last .
Eventually , we headed up to Sun Lok Kee on Mott , my favorite 0400
Sezhuan place . Ordering 2 TsingTao , I tried to ask the waiter how
to say "two" in Chinese . Totally failed to communicate .
At the end of the meal , on the back of my fortune cookie fortune was
Speak Chinese : two "er" =
I mention this only as an example of how commonly improbables happen .
Thursday afternoon , June 14 , I was on top of the world .
I had gotten the processing of my CoSy web pages in Arthur Whitney`s K
streamlined to the point I was restructuring CoSy/Home and the whole
CoSy website so that I could present my work triumphantly at APL2001
the following week . I had the taxes and accounts I am responsible for
all organized in K and ready to be brought totally up to date after the
conference . You can see the level I was approaching from my comments
TUE.MAY,010522 and mon.May.20010528 above .
I was looking forward to editing and uploading material piled up over
months dealing with other responsibilities and grokking K deeply
enough to abandon old CoSy`s last use : preprocessing my web pages .
I had just changed the center banner at the top of CoSy/Home
from the "CoSy/NoteComputing" referencing the old CoSy tech path to
"CoSy/Current" referencing these events and commentary , as you can
see I have done once again .
/20010716.0825 continuing / Under CoSy/Views I was replacing
the Travelgate example of the worst of Statist Force & Fraud , with the
an uplifting image by my friend and partner Raj , of Free Market
money building 300K$ 2 family homes in East New York .
I had put off tackling the editing of the images of Bernd Naber before and
during our Mid Winter Party , and setting up a proper gallery in
CoSy/Art for him - until I had the total control
over my web interface that embedding K in my HTML now again provides .
I will remember in particular , images of Bernd at the audio controls in
the entrance to his cubby hole , and laying back in his aerie cantilevered
on 2 angle brackets out in audio space . /
I had notes on a number of meetings and comentary covering things from the
impossibility of Global Warming to meeting Bill Gates Sr. at a panel of
self labeled " Responsible Wealth " arguing for the continuation of the
Estate tax . It`s not uncorrelated that big Bill Sr. is a lawyer like so
many of those of us righteous enough to have gotten there . Tax lawyers
stand to lose perhaps more dollars than the government itself .
When I explained to big Bill that I was a "bleeding heart" Libertarian
and asked why he felt that others were so much less charitable than he
himself and the Political Class that they must take , by threat of force ,
half of a family's assets when the parents pass away , for the State's
charities , no matter how destructive liquidation of those assets may be .
Big Bill , in a practiced lawyerly EoC said that if I were Libertarian ,
we had nothing to discuss . He would not even try to morally defend
his position .
I felt so secure in my rapidly increasing productivity , my finally
approaching having some product to offer the thousands of eyballs which
touch some part of CoSy each week , that I decided to head to Chinatown
to lay in some supplies .
When I got back , I went straight to the kitchen to steam some dumplings
on greens . With spasm of clumsiness I dropped a Corning Corelle plate
on the tile floor . If Corelle breaks , it explodes . So I spent a quarter
hour cleaning up the glass slivers . Finally tonged myself a bowl of
now well steamed dumplings and returning to my
computer heard it making strange sounds like the disk arm was bashing
against its stops . It was down hill from there .
I always imagined disks failing when either their spindle motor ( or
bearing ) fails or its actuator arm sticks or fails . A mode where both
motors stay alive , but the arm just starts sweeping back and forth
scratching the disk , I never contemplated . Here is the report .

The current Institutional Investor has an article about the government
created energy chaos in California . The Statist babies are having a
reality tantrum facing the " I don`t care " of the global energy market .
CA's wholesale cost went from 32.20 $ % MegaWattHour in `99 to 224 in `01 .
By contrast , my retail costs in NYC , including .04 sales tax ,
calculated from two comparable sized bills for 9909 and this month ,
1000 * 56.79 72.10 % 328 359 />/ 173.14 200.84 / % MgWH , NYC retail
This month's bill says the current "market supply price" for the energy
104 % MgWH , having hit 116 last month . The NYC banker , Joseph Fichera ,
the article centers on estimates all bailout bonds together will add
10$ to an expected 90 $%MgWH ongoing wholesale cost .
Bottom line , the rate payers in CA will be paying back their
( arrears plus interest ) on top of their forward going market costs .
CA's credit rating has been deservedly been dropped to A+-- , penultimate
to Louisiana .
The II article has devistating quotes . David Nolan and fellow Libertarians
out there patiently explaining reality to their Left Coast neighbors
should be able to open some minds to :
what a patent truth in advertising violation it is to label retail price
control : deregulation ;
what an obvious absurdity it is that a free market could possibly lead to
anything other than very localized failures rather than a state wide
I think the one great win for the free market will be that anybody planning
or running office parks and larger is now highly motivated to get off the
state controled grid .
This is a decade of reality facing for the "State" cultists .
