Everyone should read

This post is a perfect example of why. For those who don't know, these guys had by far the best statistical analysis throughout the whole election, and some of the most insightful commentary.

Today's piece is about what we should be expecting when the time comes for the Obama administration to work on health care, given the way they handled the stimulus bill.

On a slightly related note, the White House released this amazing slideshow of the President's road to getting the stimulus bill passed. And just to be bipartisan, the photographer responsible, Pete Souza, was also Reagan's official White House Photographer. But they didn't have web slideshows then.

Typical Me, Typical Me, Typical Meal

I was reflecting at Shaw's earlier tonight on the distressing situation that is my culinary habits. Looking at a can of Hormel Chili, a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese, and a bottle of Wild Turkey, and nothing else, on my section of the conveyor belt, it was mildly distressing to see just how much I suck at feeding myself like a normal person, but amusingly distressing to think anyone mildly familiar with my eating habits would find it completely typical for me.

Let's just all agree that we can call chili mac & cheese and whiskey "The Jeremy Special". I doubt there's much competition for that one.

Punctured bicycle, liquor store desolate

Typical Allston night. Tight jeans, track bike, messenger bag, cheap beer.

After the Shitshow show Saturday night, Zach got a flat heading home, and I decided to use it as an excuse for a drunken 3AM photo shoot outside Blanchards. I only sort of remember a few of the details, but apparently we confused the passersby with our antics. Some even joined in the session (or at least don't look like they minded being involved)

Of course, most shots came out like crap, ranging from minor issues to complete lack of focus. But a few decent shots. This is one of the best of the lot. Something about the total Allston Rock City aspect.
