Busy morning. Got a Cambridge PO box, then opened a local checking account, and got my Harvard ID. It says, in big letters, OFFICER. I asked what that means. They handed me a piece of paper that says "Officer is a nineteenth century term used for academics, administrators, and professionals. It is the highest status Harvard offers." Yow. It feels heavy. The list of perks is impressive. I can use all the Harvard libraries, athletic centers, and can dine at the Faculty Club. They even have a website for all the bennies. Today I feel very well-taken-care-of. Thanks Harvard!!

It's opening day of the 2003 baseball season and I find myself in an American League city. Those who are new to Scripting News may not realize what a potential disaster this is. The only real league is the National League. However, the Mets need someone to beat in the World Series. It might as well be the Red Sox. Disaster averted?
Lance Knobel: "To my untutored eye, it seems the British army's long experience in Northern Ireland is proving extraordinarily relevant in Iraq."
Ruzz: "The only thing I admit to doing wrong is buying all of the shares in Dave Winer's blogs so he couldn't buy anymore and what did it hurt? I drove the price for UserLand up to nearly $200 a share. Who suffers? Who!"
Caleb Crain: "Who says aesthetics has nothing to do with politics?"
