I find myself collecting little quotes from Warren Ellis’ Orbital Operations newsletter, as I read through the backlog that I’ve allowed to pile up in my email. Here’s a good one, from July 2016:

…Which isn’t to say that you shouldn’t skip work to watch the James Comey testimony today, if you want to.
