Then Shannon and I came home and read some Freakonomics, which we'd seen discussed on The Colbert Report recently. Shannon is reading it aloud to me, and it's very interesting. It's all about using the science of economics to analyze more everyday processes, such as the working of the KKK, Sumo wrestlers, or real estate agents. The discussion of the KKK was particularly interesting, as it was about a journalist -- Stetson Kennedy -- who infiltrated the organization in the 1940s and seriously impacted it, most effectively by using the Superman radio show, of all things. Really interesting stuff.
Well, I'm off to do laundry. Terribly exciting.
