Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Now that I know that the government can investigate my reading habits on little pretext, I feel more inclined to visit David Wexler, the used bookseller who carries his inventory in a van, at the Ashby BART today. In fact, it makes me want to patronize used bookstores in general, and use cash whenever I can. Help! I'm turning into a dystopian cyberpunk!
