I am a slave to a parking meter. It gets hungry every two hours and I hate it.

When I started feeding the beast at 7:00am, I had this dream that I kept getting parking tickets for $58.16. I don't know what this means, and I am also rapidly running out of quarters. Parking in the District is no fun.

The Washington Post Post

This is something I saw on Tuesday's Washington Post, page A10:

Menthol Cigarettes Harder to Give Up
Smokers of menthol cigarettes find it harder to quit than those smoking other cigarettes, researchers said yesterday, perhaps explaining why African Americans suffer disproportionately from smoking-related ailments.

I don't know why it took me so long to post this, I guess I had a lot of other things that I needed to be doing, but I just think this is absolutely rediculous. For one thing, I am pretty amazed that something like that can get published today.

That's pretty much all I'm going to say about that. Just read the paragraph and contemplate.
