One of the things I first learned about Miguel Vicente, our library director, was that he had a big red EASY button on his desk — an outward and visible sign of a sense of humor. As my son Chad said one time, when there was something I wanted him to do and I told him it would be simple, “Nothing is simple.” The longer I live, the more I realize how right he was, and how wise.
So there’s also something a little wistful about that EASY button. Wouldn’t it be nice if it were real? Anytime a problem arose, you would be able to solve it just by reaching out and hitting the red button with the big white letters on it.
