Last night I dreamt I was talking with President Obama about the "news": how the news that he and the upper echelons of the government get is fundamentally different from what the media serves the "common people". And that difference allows them to buy stock in companies about to receive big contracts from the government, buy commodities which are about to get price supports, and other tactics that enable the rich to get richer. He was stonewalling me every which way, but I could see I was getting to him.

The vinegar wipes I took to Burning Man this year helped, but now I'm wondering if I also take baking soda, and sprinkle it on me before the wipedown, if the resulting exothermic reaction would be somewhat equivalent to a hot shower. I'll have to test that out.
