the only earth?

nothing happened (or messing with Texas)

Because my life has been very uneventful -- reading, doing homework, restructuring datasets, working at the office, drinking coffee, recovering from a cold, feeling less sick but still tired -- I present a humorous news item from the Lone Star State:

State police were sent out on Monday to arrest 59 Texas Democratic state representatives who went into hiding in a protest over congressional redistricting, grinding the biennial legislative session to a halt. [link]

Almost every sentence of that story is funny, and quite possibly real. (Unless Reuters has hired the next fabulist reporter).


In other political news, I was called tonight by a candidate for GPSS office. How strange.
