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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
Relevant authorities (I assume) at UC Berkeley recently installed a cheap paper portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the lobby of the MLK Student Union. The eyes of this picture are such that they seem to be looking at anyone standing on the right side of the midline of the Reverend King's face. The effect on my paranoid delusions remains to be seen. In any case, I'd rather have King watching me (or watching over me) than, say, Ashcroft.
