  1. The Dude goes into politics - the hardest job in the world...

    Now, if by any chance you have missed the previous chapters, there's a summary here at chapter 10.

    However, this new chapter is more of the sort of personal thoughts rather than an account of what's going on and I'd like to start from this comment I made back at chapter 9:

    Last year when the whole lockdown and...other interesting activities in the United States started happening, I started collecting books to read. Nothing excessive*, just a handful** of books to pass the time while I waited for things to become normal***.
