Regarding Those WAR Figures, A Question the Reader Might Have
A question the reader might have with regard to how only Monday (and not Tuesday) WAR figures are cited above is, “Why is that the case?”
Regarding the Reader’s Question, An Answer to It
The answer to the reader’s question in re Monday, as opposed to Tuesday, WAR figures being cited is this: “Because the author writes the majority of these Notes on the night before the morning after.”
Regarding the Author, Why He Does That
Because he worships at the altar of Leisure, is why, and dedicates the largest part of his morning to Unfettered Repose.
Regarding the Reader, What He or She Is Invited to Do
The reader is invited to remove all the fetters from his or her repose, as well — provided circumstances allow. Or, if not all the fetters, maybe just like a half or quarter of them — provided circumstances continue to allow.
