“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

How to fold your T shirts in Two seconds
I have been busy with traveling, working and family obligations. A few weeks back, I lost my cleaning lady due to something or another with the tragic consequence of being forced to do my own laundry. No one takes socks, boxer shorts and t-shirts to the cleaners, do they?
For years I had an endless supply of t-shirts, all neatly folded and stacked in the left center drawer of my bureau. They were neat and endless because someone else did then. This week they ran out and I decided to do laundry while watching the Sunday lineup. I discovered my profound ineptitude about t-shirts. How do you fold the damn things to the standards of which I have become accustomed?
You tube, of course.
My drawer is now a work of art, onto the boxers.
