RIP Pinetop Perkins

Switched to playing piano after an angry woman swung a blade at him and cut the tendons in his arm and he couldn't play guitar no more. Played blues with Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, B.B. King. Ate cheeseburgers and smoked till the day he died at age 97.

A smug, closed-minded sect

Krugman:
if you’ve reached the point where you don’t pay attention to anything that might disturb your orthodoxy, you’re not doing science, you’re not even pursuing a discipline. All you’re doing is perpetuating a smug, closed-minded sect.
