Rust Cohle's pronouncement that time is a flat circle; everything we've ever done or will do, we're gonna do over and over and over again rings true* for yet another Redskins opener.  [insert sad trombone or descending slide whistle sound effect here, as you see fit]

On a possibly cheerier, or at least more useful this again? note, please don't forget yesterday's run of previously-referenced opportunities closing this week.

… and, finally: tomorrow, we’ll get back on track, and back to school, with a Tuesday focused set on opportunities at colleges & universities in DC, Maryland & Virginia – but we figured you would want at head start on this Stable Manager gig at Goucher College in Baltimore, MD.  Our first instinct here was to throw a few japes at the questionable educational utility & probable cost-escalating effects of college equestrian programs, but frankly, taking care of horses sounds like a pleasant & worthwhile alternative to the interminable meetings, the never-ending river of emails, and general desk-boundedness of office life.  Great pep talk, huh?  You're welcome!

* also acceptable for yesterday's misfire in Houston: So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.  It's going to be a frustrating Fall for those of us w/ affection for the local squad.
