It started so innocently. I was looking for pictures for a video my wife and I were putting together for my father-in-law’s birthday. I needed one of a penguin, and a quick internet search turned up plenty, along with a story of Fraternite Notre Dame nuns forced to live without heat after their boiler broke.
I searched “nuns without heat” to see if I could donate, then spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to use PayPal. This led to a short investigation into the safety of internet commerce, then to Penny Pritzker, current U.S. Secretary of Commerce, then to an article on when the Fed will raise interest rates.
