My own playing? Well, it’s better than it was yesterday.

Three cheers for Mona Charen in her endeavors to learn to play the cello. Bravo! Cello Notes – Mona Charen http://m.townhall.com/columnists/monacharen/2013/02/19/cello-notes-n1515082?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl

Creating pensions that offer generous retirement benefits wins votes in the present by promising spending in the future. Promises cost nothing in the short run — and elections are held in the short run, long before the pensions are due.

This thought occurred to me this morning: while using email, or another form of electronic communication, is there really a need for a P.S.?

It stands for post script, yes? Used when you forgot to include something in your original composition, or to add something that occurred since you finished your composition. Well, when you compose a letter using email there is no need to add this note at the end, is there? You can just go back and insert it wherever you want to in the “original” composition, thus ending the need for the P.S.

So long, Post Script. I will miss you.

P.S. I can’t do it!
