Home Safe

 Jenny and Hers Truly have arrived home safely from Connecticut. She went to visit Jen and Ethan, and their daughter. Great play was had by all. Reportedly, Jen and Ethan have a pirate ship in their back yard.

Our wayfarers arrived home at midnight. I woke up, tuck a mostly asleep girl into bed, told her one story, then crept out.

However, in the end, power = economy. We now have a tough problem to work through: how to do we run a steady-state economy without making haves and have-nots?
