planet plutonium

Going to Flagstaff tomorrow for a few days, a romantic getaway. I always make it a point to visit the Lowell Observatory while I’m there, the place where the planet Pluto was discovered….and yes I do still consider it to be a planet and realize that I may be charged with scientific heresy for stating so.

Expect a lengthy post about jackets when I return…
I know, I know, the suspense will kill you

Well, the election is tomorrow.  Sometimes I wished we lived in an aristocracy. I think that a ruling class would be preferable over a single leader able to do things on a whim… probably would rather have something like a “council of elders.” And in a system with a ruling class, there should be opportunities for moving up in class like in the middle ages either through some great deed(being made a noble) or competition in an arena, slaying a gigantic beast etc. My ideal form of government would be similar to that of the ape city in Planet of the Apes(1968 version) even though I recognize they also incorporate some heavily theocratic elements as well….

I’ll take Dr Zaius over Obama and Mccain any day.
