the only earth?

weekend briefs

Much of this weekend was spent at the Capitol Hill Block Party, listening to bands, missing some acts due to lines and meetings, eating ethnic foods in a parking lot, and trying to navigate the surprisingly confusing layout. Still, it was thoroughly entertaining and remarkably temperate and lots of music was consumed and temporary hearing damage was induced.

Sunday was pretty much focused on being lazy (by watching political talk shows), getting groceries (at several places), looking around downtown (going to the anniversary sale on the last day is not a good idea), and reading the newspaper (except for the Magazine, which was missing; so I felt compelled to read the Book Review). The front-page article in the New York Times about the dramatic shift in human health and demographics [nyt] was incredibly fascinating and has some solid infographics.
