We just got back from a weekend trip to Bowie, MD, to visit my parents. It was a brief visit, but it was great to see my family and get away from the city.
I don't have anything else at the moment. I'm watching Driven on HBO, and wondering why they screwed up some decent racing scenes with goofy computer-generated graphics and zooms. The racing looks like they modeled it on an EA Sports game instead of actual CART racing.
I've got some thoughts on Operation TIPS, the expansion of government powers, and possible infringements on our existing civil rights, but I haven't put them together coherently yet. Maybe tomorrow. My basic thesis is: the situation sucks, but what are you gonna do about it?
