Steady State

From the obituary of John Downey, a CIA operative held prisoner as a spy in China from 1952 to 1973:
"When you talk about 20 years in a lump sum, it sounds like a big deal,” he told reporters. But, he said, β€œOn a day-to-day basis, you just learn to go along.”
And we complain when the internet goes down.

Godspeed, Mr. Downey.  Thank you for the perspective.
