A college friend died quite suddenly this week, and I'll be heading back to Michigan for the funeral. There's a lot to ponder her passing. Including how life doesn't give a hoot about your assumptions about how it works. I could go all deep here, but at the moment I am confused how a round-trip ticket from Denver to Detroit, which doesn't include a Saturday overnight, and was purchased less than 7 days in advance cost less than $100. I'm not complaining. But this was not exactly the cosmic balance I was hoping for.
