"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

A Disturbing Series of Events

What a weekend! Here’s a breakdown of some of the more alarming events.

1. I’m in the money in our NCAA Basketball pool. That is to say, that I came in dead last and won my money back. In one year I’ve gone from the top of the heap, to the bottom of the pack. Awesome.

2. On saturday, I went to put a few bags into our outside garbage can. Inside, was a box someone had dumped there last garbage day while the cans were out in the street. I went to pull the box out and noticed it was AWFULLY heavy. It turns out that a rather large cat decided to curl up in our garbage can to die and was frozen in our garbage can. Apparently this is what cats do when they sense they’re going to die… they wander away from home and curl up somewhere. Awesome. At least it didn’t curl up into Jared’s engine block or something.

3. Shari and I went and saw a documentary that EVERYONE should see. It’s called “Why We Fight“, and it’s a pretty scathing indictment of the US foreign policy and the build-up of the so-called ‘industrial military complex’. Most of the interview subjects are BIG names in the Republican party, and it would be hard to say that it’s entirely bi-partisan, but it looks at how the US gov’t is set up in an historical perspective, so it’s hardly ‘anti-Bush’. Go see it.

Now, I’m off to drink coffee and write policies.
