"What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote
in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes
his own self-interest as he sees it... which for the majority translates as 'Bread and Circuses'."
- Robert A. Heinlein

In Roman times, free Bread and Circuses entertained the masses. I hope you find your time
here both entertaining and informative.

Skiing and Things

A very rare personal glimpse at what I did today. Yes, below you will find the standard fare of most blogs... While I don't often engage in such personal revelation on the World Wide Web, I'll make an exception.

Tonight I went skiing for the first time in my life, with a bunch of good friends, and had a blast. I'm sure I'll be feeling it in the morning, but the best way to stop as a beginner is to fall down. Oh, and screaming like a little girl as your rocket down a hill, having not yet mastered the best way to decelerate without falling, also helps. But I did get to knock down the brother of one of my classmates. Sure, it may have looked like we collided with each other, but it was all me, I claim full credit for that one... I thought taking his feet out from under him while in a low crouch was cool.

Oh, I just found a band I really want to go see. The C.J.T.F. Band: Coalition of the Willing. Of course, since they only have one concert a year, in venues such as Hungary, or New York, or the Hungarian Embassy in D.C., and their next possibly planned for Eastern Europe, that may be difficult. They don't even have an album out, dangit. Oh well, something to look forward to I guess.
