From BBC News: US youngsters are too fat to fight, warn generals.  On the one hand, um, depressing?  On the other, this is great news for anyone who criticises the size of the US military! And obese draft-dodgers too: no additional effort required, guys.

Went to Brighton yesterday.  It’s a pretty happenin’ place, lots of trendy shops and such.  Most enjoyable — flea shop selling old binoculars, out of print books, b & w photos, etc. and digital piano store where I played on some really cool instruments.  It turns out that having lots of dials to make funky sounds with really gets the creative juices flowing.

General optimism level for life: 6
