Writing this entry from the Madison Building of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. It was surprisingly easy to get here (having made the commute many times, I was expecting the worst). I'm researching old newspapers for a book I'm writing.

Inadvertently on the way down I listened to one of the NPR stations and got to hear Anne Garrelts reporting from Iraq, telling us the "satellite dishes are literally flying off the shelves." Which conjured up diverting images of satellite dishes sneaking out of their cages and zooming up to the ceilings of the local Best Buy, while exasperated clerks try to net them. That's what I get for listening to NPR.
