Donning protective masks the second the American cyclists arrive in China… how symbolically pleasing for someone concerned with China’s rampant human rights abuses. Photo from the New York Times.

Congratulations to the Celtics on their 17th NBA title! Yet another win that proves just how much better than every other city Boston is. The AP ran an ecstatic post-game story: On a new parquet floor below aging championship banners, the Boston Celtics won their 17th NBA title and a first one—at last—for Paul Pierce, [...]
That’s all I have to say.
So, um, Boston (or perhaps New England, which is really Massachusetts) kicks so much ass at sports.

I have to stop doing that. I woke up and immediately starting writing the midterm essay that was due by 2:30. [...]
Photo stolen from the New York Times. How ironic.
The Red Sox kicked Cleveland’s ass. It was phenomenal. Once again I ate too much (so full!). I took a nice long shower, have become fully nocturnal again, and earlier tonight I watched a box theatre performance. Despite my otherwise good weekend, I feel myself slipping into another generalized malaise. I don’t like these times. [...]
