God damn it, media and people. Can we have fewer announcements that Obama *will* lift the gag rule, and instead have an announcement that he *has* done it? I don't want to hear leaks from staffers, I want to hear about what's been signed and finalized.

Z&C Teriyaki and Sushi: still good. Two days ago I had their udon combo plus a seaweed salad (which isn't on the paper menu, look to the walls.) Combo is $10 but comes with a choice from a limited selection of rolls; I tried eel. Mmm, eel. Warm, fresh-cooked eel. Soup was good, salad was great. I paid $15 total so salad price is presumably $3-4.

* Rehabbing the view of the black family. This is both good and very, very sad (about the US.)
* Will Shetterly's dad and civil rights history
* Pulp
* Intermittent island. It's like Jingo.
* Economic inefficiency of individual retirement accounts

Life besides links? Sleep-deprived and tired. Taking Hofstadter's course on Mind and the Atom, and Leake's course on Symbolic Machine Learning. Bought Pandemic, the board game. Getting tired of looking for right-wing misery online, or arguing about alleged natural rights. It's warm out, I should escape the computer. BTW, IU bureaucracy sucks.

Oh, it's a great thing, now that it's happened. I just got sick of seeing a *zillion* "He's gonna do it!" announcements. It's the whole media things where rumors and anticipations are news. I guess it's also my cynicism/fear/pessimism; I don't want to believe until the good stuff has happened. Signatures, not promises. Or maybe I was just online too much.

I'm just waiting for Jordan's reactions.
