steady work--is conservatism's task of keeping government where it belongs, which is on a short constitutional leash, and politics in its place, which is at the margins of life.

Actually, in my case, there is a fourth: the hope for Cubs baseball in late October. I shall be 67 on the centennial of the Cubs' last World Series victory. Something to live for.
