Policy wonks

I got a good chuckle out of this description of policy wonks. It's a little bit self-important of a description, but not generally otherwise off. I'm probably somewhere between being a philosopher and a policy wonk.

Semi-related, I've been reflecting on it, and I really like the term 「Teachable Moment」, or rather the concept it refers to. I like the idea of people keeping an eye out for these in their lives.
