How to keep our country from succumbing to the English model of
society, that ants are, collectively, smarter than humans (Ever
seen ants get in a traffic jam). That the world would be a better
place if everyone rode a bicycle. Why my brain keeps interpreting
OK Cupid as "OK Stupid."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
