Words to live by

El Cabrero is a big fan of Japanese author Haruki Murakami's novels, which can sort of be described as postmodern magical realism. Or maybe like a weird long dream. I'm in the middle of one of his newer works, the massive 1Q84.

One can often find nuggets of wisdom in works like this. Here's one for today:

Life is so uncertain: you never know what could happen. One way to deal with that is to keep your pajamas washed.
Duly noted.

AND ONE FOR THE ROAD: worshipers of the market god are not going to like this, but it looks like job growth is bigger in states that have raised their minimum wage. I'm glad to say that WV joined the ranks earlier this year, although the raise hasn't taken effect yet.
