Wednesday February 11, 2004 To Pillsbury House, where I did data entry for the Community Barter Network. Found out CBN will be getting back on the web soon.

Bought corn tortillas at a small grocery inside Mercado Centro. They're fresher than the supermarket ones (which are imported from Oregon), and at that grocery they're cheaper.

Worked on the "Elfland Prisoner" story, which is turning out to be humorous. (I hope it will also turn out to be funny.)
Politics: Every so often, a high percentage of drug users realize that heroin does bad stuff to them. They turn to a safer drug -- cocaine.

Farther on, such people realize that cocaine does bad stuff to them. They turn to a nice, safe drug -- heroin.

In US politics, there's a liberal/conservative cycle.

I expect Bush to win reelection -- unless he makes too many mistakes, or mistakes he's made in the past catch up with him. If he does win, there will be Experts proclaiming that the GOP will be the majority party forever.

2006: Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.

2008: Democratic Presidential candidate wins.
Olympia - Nearly 60% of Washington's tax base is exempt because of loopholes. The state gives more than 500 different tax breaks on items as diverse as bull semen, human body parts and country club dues. Lawmakers are considering whether to extend high-tech tax breaks worth $100 million a year as well as tax breaks for aluminum smelters and health clubs.
