time to go to the library!

The Patriot Act is getting defanged: the bit about the FBI being able to access our library and bookstore records has--pardon the inopportune phrase, but I'm excited--gone down in flames. Trust me, nobody is using the SFPL to learn "how to fly planes...put together biological weapons...put together chemical weapons, nuclear weapons". Because what people do there is sleep. And take sponge baths in the restrooms. And check out massive stacks of books with their kids. And watch videos.

And accumulate piles and piles of books to decorate the floor around the bed. Right now, mostly Cooking for Dummies type stuff, a novel, background on the Brothers Karamazov, and a book of Anna Akhmatova's poetry. That's me, terrorist in training.
