Wednesday June 30, 2004. To Pillsbury House, where I did data entry for the Community Barter Network and Pillsbury House's volunteer program.

The #23 bus now runs three times an hour during the day -- up from twice an hour. Which makes it more convenient for me. This is a side-effect of Light Rail Transit; the 23 connects with the 38th Street Station, and all crosstown buses which connect with the Hiawatha Line now run more frequently.

From there to Uncle Hugo's sf bookstore on the #5 bus. Bought the Hartwell-Cramer fantasy year's best collection. I like their picks -- in both fantasy and sf -- better than the other year's bests.

#21 to the Uptown Lunds supermarket. Extra large eggs were cheaper than large eggs; I don't know why, and I don't know how long this will last. (Lunds is upscale enough that it doesn't carry medium eggs. Logically, this means there ought to be downscale groceries which sell small eggs; reality refuses to be logical in this matter.)

#23 line back home. The route change in Uptown makes it as convenient as it would be if I'd designed it myself.

Got this link from Crooked Timber http://crookedtimber.org. If you have any interest in economics, it's worth reading:

Economica 1945, pp. 189-201.
The Economic Organization of a P.O.W. Camp
By R.A. Radford
Come on, with a title like this - Nader, Dean to Debate if Ralph Should Run - the answer's bloody obvious, isn't it? Nader says yes, Dean says no, Nader says yes and sneers, Dean says no and gets a little flushed, Nader screams Yes, Dean shouts No, Nader starts shoving metal spikes through a rag doll ritually prepared to represent the Democratic Party, Dean pulls out the holy water, silver nitrate and a long wooden stake, they both assume their Crinos form, the Classic Star Trek fight music starts up and we end up with a trashed sound set and a bunch of gibbering radio engineers.


Actually, on second thought all of that sounds kind of interesting. July 9th, is it?
