Ahh - I missed a day. Sorry - was busy. I had a busy socializing kinda day, did errands, got into a very deep discussion with Jim on the fate of the economy, collapse of the US market, advancement of the next global ice age, and all sorts of depressing worst case scenarios... I then met up w/Rachel and Lyle and we went to Georgetown w/John and Tracy for pizza... I'd never been to Georgetown, but I must say - it's a whole other world over there. Feels kinda like an unknown neighborhood in Chicago...
In any case - the FBI kinda sorta hinted at possible threat on July 4th... Whoa geez! Well, they're not stopping flights - and well, I gotta live my life, so I'm going to L.A. next week.
Speaking of living free - Pride '02 is happening at this very moment - and again, I'm missing because I've too much to do... However, while everyone in Seattle, incl me, has been dissing it - deeming it tired and even more tired (and from looking at the lineup - it is the same sorry-floats from last year, the year before, etc) - we really have to acknowledge the fact we can even have an event like this. Would pride be able to be held in say - Egypt (where they put gays and lesbians to death?)... Yeah - I know, these sentiments are cliche, but dammit - value your freedom for a change (be you gay, straight, asian, black, whatever...) lest someone else decides to take it away.
