Saturday November 22, 2003. To the Southwest Senior Center, to pick up FARE for All food. A reasonably good selection. I did return some seafood, so someone likely to eat it could have an extra.

Yesterday, I'd asked in rec.food.cooking about salt-free eating. I got a fair amount of good advice. (Some of it I already knew.)

One person kindly explained that some salt is necessary. Which I knew already, and which didn't answer my question. I managed to keep my reply polite.

The unsalted potato chips I bought yesterday taste a bit too oily. The raw, unsalted trail mix was okay. (If there's roasted but unsalted trail mix, the Wedge doesn't have it.)

Writing: I now know what happens in the next scene of "The Caterpillar on the Leaf" -- and what information it contains.

And very late last night, I made a start on "Some Their Gold and Some Their Gear." The title's a quote from "Tam Lin":

There's none that go by Carterhaugh
But they leave him a wad.
Some their gold, and some their gear,
And some their maidenhead.

From a post I made in rec.arts.sf.composition:
The only bestseller list I pay much attention to currently is USA Today's -- top fifty in their Thursday paper, top three hundred on their website. They have all books competing against each other -- fiction or nonfiction, paperback or hardcover. So I can see not only how Harry Potter books sell compared to Anne Rice's _Foundation and Vampire_ or the latest culinary mystery, but how they compare to _The Light Socket Cookbook_ and Ann Coulter's _Nine Billion Years of Liberal Treason_.

Some responses to my hypothetical: Yesterday I asked whether, according to the jurisprudential theories of those opposed to the Massachusetts marriage decision, it would be constitutional for a state to ban nonprocreative heterosexual marriages.
