Okay, screw it. I need caffeine, I need a nap, and I need to drive north tonight without dying (impromptu trip -- what they tend to call whirlwind -- thus no time for anything except the road, museums, and perhaps a few fleeting hours of rest). There's only time for two out of those three things, so I officially give up on trying to write anything coherent here, and instead suggest that you all go read this, as it's the most interesting thing I've read all week.
Have a good weekend, all. Be excellent to each other.
