Dave Barry sayz:
The wrestlers were here, needless to say, to encourage young people to vote. You cannot wave your Antiterrorist Kit in this city without striking a celebrity encouraging young people to Make Their Voices Heard on the Issues. When I was a young person, the only issue I cared about was finding another young person willing to have sex with me, but apparently young people today have all these bigger concerns, and they are constantly being nagged by famous celebrities to do something about them.
1968 called. They want to scream "Down with dualism!" Then again, I suppose there's no chance of getting notified of a Young Conservatives Free Love Party when I get back to Austin...
As for the rest of stuff - I'm here, and will be for the next two weeks. We have DSL, amazingly enough, but getting access to it is a bit difficult. So I hope to get active again on the Bujold list, etc, but my family might interfere.
ajhalluk has regained a large portion of respect from me for posting this as a response in her LJ:
Oh, I don't mind people hijacking my threads to talk about historical pornography or whatever provided they include proper footnotes.
Now off to work on the road.
