....chicken salad from Reading Terminal. I don't normally buy chicken salad because when it's bad it's really bad, but the stuff Hatville Deli serves is downright tasty. Have some. Now!

I am getting really tired of presidential debates in which the candidates are asked about their opinions on torture in the context of a "Jack Bauer" scenario. Since when did it become intellectually respectable to frame questions of national policy in terms of a television series? Shall we now engage in debates about abortion based on the situation faced by the President of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol?

Hey, Yagathai showed "Deer Woman" at Movie Night yesterday, and it was a howl. One of the funnier MN selections of late, and definitely one I'll remember for a long time. Apparently the flick is part of the "Masters of Horror" series, for those who want to look it up.

I'm currently watching fifth-season episodes of "Babylon 5" to support my theory that Sheridan was an awful politician who got it wrong half the time and then weaseled out of his responsibility to make it right. You're probably thinking, "Uhh...don't you have socks to sort, or some lint to pick out of your navel?" Yeah, I'd really do something so useless.

New favorite lyric:

"Who's peeking out from under a stairway, calling a name that's lighter than air
Who's bending down to give me a rainbow, everyone knows it's Windy
Who's tripping down the streets of the city, smiling at everybody he** sees
Who's reaching out to capture a moment everyone knows it's Windy"

Artist: The Association (Ruthann Friedman)
Song: Windy
Album: Insight Out

**Yes, you saw "he." Believe it or not, this song was written by Ruthann Friedman about a man, but when The Association recorded it they changed the lyrics. You can find the original lyrics here.
