From Twitter

Caving to peer pressure, I decided to give Twitter a try. I’ve been using the service for over a week, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I only post 2-3 times per week to this blog, so any ideas that aren’t large enough to justify a 1000-word article simply aren’t published. Twitter helps fill that gap.

The Botany of Desire – Michael Pollan shares the story of a relationship between humankind and plants. Although people tend to see themselves as the active force in domesticating apples, flowers and food, Pollan offers another perspective: that the plants are shaping us.

Coincidentally, I read the chapter on cannabis on the evening of 4/20. My part in the celebration, I suppose.

    Way to join the rest of the world on Twitter. I know you’re new to it, but you are supposed to actually follow other people though (that’s kind of the idea).

Debate is fine, flaming is not. Pretend that this comment form is a discussion taking place in my house. That means I enjoy constructive criticism and polite suggestions. Personal attacks, insults and all-purpose nastiness will be removed especially if it is directed at other readers.
