ruminations about architecture and design

Hotel architecture tends to be very finely tuned. Exterior detailing is generally ignored, except to signal brand identity. Interior decor is carefully managed to create a sense of welcome, but not for too long. Privacy for guest is simultaneously respected and interrupted, and at the end of the visit, money always changes hands in a way that is most favorable to the establishment. A good hotel does not encourage loitering.

National events seem to be heading somewhere strange lately. The Democrats have a new weapon that they're not sure how to use. The Republicans are circling the wagons in a haphazard fashion. It is hard to imagine a scenario where some more people do not lose their jobs before the end of the week. Also, there is a high probability that somebody is preparing to leak something that will keep the story alive.
