Friday June 4, 2004. I ran into Nate Bucklin on the bus.

I got off at Bryant and 31st -- and my right sandal fell apart. I'd been heading for a garage sale a couple of blocks away; I decided to continue on. If I didn't find footwear the right size, I would return home and put on shoes.

And then I cut my toe. And found out the wrong way that the aspirin I've been taking as a blood thinner works.

Luckily, the sale was at a nursing home. I got patched up. Found a pair of shoes which were almost large enough. And I got some things I needed, at low prices.

And that knife I got for a dime is indeed sharp.

I went home, put on shoes that fit, and went to the HealthPartners Uptown pharmacy. There was a glitch; I would/will have to return next week for what I needed. I bought some non-prescription supplies.

On to the Walgreens between 24th and 25th on Hennepin, where I bought sandals.

Back to Uptown. Groceries at Rainbow Foods, a few things at DreamHaven Books.

***Writing: daily exercise -- A short political rant:

If you're sure you have the solution, you're part of the problem.

I don't think any theory available today is adequate to diagnose social problems and decide what remedies would solve those problems. I don't care how sound you think your mathematics, theology, dialectic, or futurology is; the evidence so far is that it doesn't work worth a tinker's dam.
