Two notes about this article:

  1. It’s incredibly long-winded and most of the top part just summarizes another, even longer article on the web. Not cool, Ana Swanson at The Washington Post. If you just read that article, then go back to the Washington Post article and skip down to the part that begins “Present Homer vs. Future Homer,” you’ll be fine.

  2. I should have been doing something else while I was reading the article and composing this blog post.
