Conquering AT&T

Wifi’s down again (!), my thumbs will be brief. (We’re unhappy with you, AT&T, & about ready to quit you once & for all. Not that you’ll notice or care. “Mediation” strikes again.)

Today we turn to Bertrand Russell’s bright, breezy, borderline-sexist “Conquest of Happiness.” What would Bertie say about the ordinary everyday sort of unhappiness a broken Internet connection can cause? “Turn your attention to other things,” probably: 

“The wise man will be as happy as circumstances permit and if he finds the contemplation of the universe painful be on the point he will contemplate something else instead.” Right.

Good advice, for now. Dumping our provider may have its satisfactions too.
