On this day in 1781, Uranus was discovered. Or rather, the planet Uranus was discovered by Sir William Herschel. So today, we celebrate Uranus!

No clubbing for me tonight. Sigh. RQ's dad is in town next week, so now I am shooting for the, uh, 27th I guess.

Book club reading still going slow, but I am very well enjoying it. The length of the book is scaring me, in that I want to finish in time, for a change of pace. But projects piling up, etc. Need more time!

And in case you couldn't tell from your inbox, spam e-mail is reaching terrifying new heights. We really need a solution here.

Re: vietnam
I think the parallel is a little closer here. How exactly do we plan to teach the entire country of Iraq about the joys and inner workings of democracy overnight? Don't get me wrong, it's a great concept, but most of the people in *our* country don't get it, and we're gonna be the shining beacon over there?
