    Just FYI we're 650 days away. My professor updates every class to point out just how ridiculous the coverage is and how many important stories aren't being covered in lieu of the horse race.
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    I recall a spot in the movie Broadcast News. Jane (Holly Hunter) is giving a speech on the future of journalism and complains that a major move in Soviet foreign policy was bumped by a segment on a record domino pattern. The response from the audience, "Good."

    He just turned 90, amazing indeed! He "retired" in Tucson but thankfully still wants to share his wisdom.
