Macbeth the Usurper

Tea

The chinese movie wound up being sold out. Not only was it sold out, no one from the "I hope there are tickets" line actually got in. We wound up driving to Bethesda to see Hell Boy instead. Hell Boy was fun.

Check out the BBC News for the unfolding "Americans Torturing Iraqis" travesty unfolding in the foreign press.

Look up Phillp Zimbardo to learn about psych experiments done with normal people in "prison" settings, and how awful people become to each other in dehumanizing circumstances.

Chapter 4

I finally figured out what to do with that irksome Chapter 4. I'm cutting it. I really don't need it. It added some things to the story, but really, the chapter wound up not working, and removing it helps keep the flow of the story going.

Huzzah. Damned chapter.
