From talkleft, via http://politicalwire.com/southpaws:
Arianna posts this leaked memo from the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign which, if for real, is enough for me to say "No Hillary" rather than "Go Hillary" in 2008.

But I suspect the memo is a fake, particularly due to the inclusion of this paragraph:

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is being held on August 7th, and we expect HRC to be the “Grand Marshall.” HRC has agreed to get three tattoos. Thoughts? Top suggestions so far: “Semper Fi,” “Live Fast Die Young”, and “Senators Do It on the Floor”. Check local chapter of Hell’s Angels for endorsement and temp renaming to “Hillary’s Angels”. Must be sure HRC’s motorcycle lessons are completed by then, and remind her to call her bike her “hog”. Also, what size bustier and leather skirt is HRC?
From EurekAlert http://www.eurekalert.org/pubnews.php:
Public Release: 6-Dec-2005
American Geophysical Union
Study: Temperate forests could worsen global warming
A new study finds that temperate forests, by absorbing sunlight, warm the air in the process and may increase global warming. According to the research from the Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, planting forests at certain latitudes could make the Earth warmer. Carnegie's Ken Caldeira will present the work at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco on December 7, 2005.

Tuesday November 6, 2005. Eggcorn seen on rec.food.cooking: Exasperated Milk.

***It was too cold to go outside without a reason, and I didn't have a good enough reason. Which meant I didn't get much writing done; I do better after I've been out of the house for at least a few hours.
What would an unbroken human be like?
What would an undamaged human be like?
What would a truly mature human be like?
What would a truly sane human be like? (Note: "Sane" in the sense of "mentally healthy" rather than "conforming to a particular cultural definition of what humans should be.")
Writing: "I Might Have Wed a King's Daughter" (was "Pygmalion's Daughter, Galatea's Son") -- Got down the beginning. The protagonist wakes up, and remembers watching ships on the Los Angeles River. He also remembers that it's not exactly a navigable stream. Now I need to find out just how much/little water that river has.

A Choice of Ruins (crosstime opera) -- The narrator now figures out something important on her own, rather than having to be told.

"Getting Synesthesia Write" -- Redid the opening, and got a bit farther.

Self-help information:

Decluttering: Some stuff picked up. Some stuff organized.

Selfwork: Shifting attention around my body. Short meditations.
