First the ‘Stuff’ bit. Over the past few days I’ve come across a turn of phrase or sentence here and there that captures a thing well enough to be quoted.
From Professor Hale: Current politicians wait to see which way the crowd is going and then move to march in front of it and claim to be leading it.
Then there’s this concerning magic from Ilona Andrews:
… so many people are ignorant of the basic mechanical principles involved in making the phone work, to them it might as well be magic.
The phone, cars, computers, and even government, would seem to fall under ‘magic’ for most folks.
