I used to be middling friends with a guy who was a bit on the slow side.... IQ probably in the high 80s, which could probably pass itself off as average now, but in those days it was considered slow. Tony (I always called him Tony because that was his name) was an amiable sort of man and there was nothing he wouldn't do to try to help anyone who needed it.
But Tony, because he didn't understand a lot of things, had a lot of respect for anyone who did. He respected me so much he was always trying to call me 'mister'.
Anyway, someone had given Tony an old television set. He got to liking it so much he was inseparable from it. Then it went kaput and he was in a state of high anxiety. He brought it over to me, sure I could fix it.
"I don't know if it's the bulbs, or the anteeena," he explained, "but it won't pick up no stations, won't even light up."
I didn't know, either.
Which is more-or-less how I feel about how difficult it's been to get to Lottery Post lately. To navigate around in it, frequently unable to do so. Old comp will navigate all over the web, but not here. It chugs and cranks and acts as though it's going to load eventually, but I finally run out of patience and go get the info I need from another site. Or I get a, SITE IS TOO BUSY notice when it tries to load. It's been happening intermittently for almost a month now.
I don't know whether it's the bulbs, or the anteeena.
