20060820's NY Times Travel section has a picture of a beautiful girl. When I think of the Greek works, she's really damn close to the girls I imagined.

Spent yesterday hiking around and playing pool afterwards with Eric, Todd, and Jim; which was a very welcome use of a Saturday. Interesting ideas from the walk and talk were: has the rate at which new US federal laws are created changed over the past two centuries? if so, any correlation to things like number of states, or increase in the speed of communication (before radio and after).
