Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Thursday, May 13, 2004

Thursday May 13, 2004. Good news from India -- a change in government. BJP, the party leading what had been the governing coalition, is a Hindu nationalist party seemingly dedicated to disproving the notion that only monotheists can be religious bigots.

I walked to Steeple People thrift store. Among the freebie magazines: February 1999 Scientific American, with an article by Benoit B. Mandelbrot: A Multifractal Walk Down Wall Street.

Across the street to the Wedge. Two pounds of organic carrots were a whole 20¢ more than Rainbow charges for conventional carrots; and they taste at least 20¢ better than conventional carrots.

To Rainbow, where I bought turkey giblets.

To Lunds, for turkey wings and eggs. Lunds had large eggs for ten cents less than Rainbow did -- and two cents less than Rainbow's medium eggs. Interesting, since Rainbow sells on low prices and Lunds is upmarket.

***I saw an "Army of One" bumpersticker, and wondered if any pacifist group had come up with "Army of None."

Writing: "Well Met, Well Met, My Old True Love" -- the story is now closer to what it needs to be. I've added the audacious prediction that a few centuries from now, humans will still use drugs for non-medical purposes.

Killing Futures -- Needs a viewpoint character. So far, I've only got a job description.
