Granted the Gods of the Parimutuels were with us in the Presque 5 race, owing to the aggregation of the probabilities via the coupled entry. How’s that old saying? Rather be lucky than good? More and more in this life, that is probably the best way. No one makes it on their own — too much randomness and happenstance for any one mope to control, no matter what all the self-important machers would have you believe. On the other hoof, as another good and honest (if silent) President of the United States said, ‘The world is full of educated derelicts’. In other words, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. That’s in a book called ‘The Bible’, which makes for interesting ideas and imagery, especially in the latter stages. Specifically, the FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD passage is from James 2:14-26. So, you need a little of both, a little mazel, a little Horatio Alger. Mazel + Horatio Alger = A Life of Productivity, Service & Fulfillment. Probably.
Take care today, Week 2 of Swampatoga & Del Mar. Do your best. We do ours, mostly.
