love you joe. and mother jones? you released that video a little too soon. okay okay one more thing: tina fey should cut her hair short (except the widow's peak) and impersonate paul ryan on snl. lock it up.
have never gone hungry. important to remember.
landed in miami to explore the northern caribbean. full route.
awaited an e-mail and started a large computer program
mid-day friday, then cut out early. drove to key west and back, finished my work late-night. this is my life right now.
drove the remarkably unremarkable pavement along the keys..
..luckily this fellow spiced things up. gutsy.
found few signs of authentic habitation..
mostly just shallow diving
atlantic ocean, gulf of mexico, me, snore
sponsored beer drinking
got pretty frustrated when hey oh hello there..
oh look another one hanging out on the banks of fort zachary taylor hey wait lemme snap some photos
gah no don't leave actually holy moly thanks for the memories
..and a post-game marching band interpretation of west side story.
sped into the night.
explored state parks of the plains. huh. pretty flat.
visited the little apple..
..full of great ideas.
discovered wamego. still going to the bank on frank baum's choice of giving dorothy a kansan homestead. a wild n simple saturday..
..also, world's shittiest petting zoo.
ate gator tots.
wish more local libraries bound small towns together..
..the reading room was all mine.
answered some questions..
our challenge as a nation? resist the urge to build new things, instead make old things work better than new.
why are heartlanders fat? hot dogs grow on trees.
how can this state get more religious? change the name to kansus.
what if i were average? the world would be fucking awesome. that's what.
passed an afternoon in topeka.
moved in for a closer look.
sympathize with hippies..
..even if they do resemble antonin scalia.
stopped by one of the schools desegregated by oliver brown versus the board of education of topeka..
..not long ago, in a city i love.
rented one, ate from the other.
shared the road.
scooped some fancy new headgear off the side of the highway.
arrived at big city sunset..
..things just getting started.
strongly disagree. if canada is with us, mexico too..
..and not sure how rallying around atheism helps. a tiny sliver of the population, we already punch well above our weight. schools of public health have a hard time attracting alumni dollars because graduates donate to the organizations solving problems that they care about instead. the convening of atheists has always posed a parallel problem: fight for what you do believe in.
drank a beer, watched the 1992 debates. ross perot's healthcare proposal? copy other nations.
