In the interest of upgrading my travel mettle, I recently subjected myself to two vaccinations. Vaccination one will protect me for five years against against yellow fever, vaccination two will protect me for five years against typhoid fever. I feel so fucking 2007. A 2007 question for today, 4 July, is do I have more chance in being murdered by a terrorist or by yellow fever?
I love life — so for today I think that means that I love wiretapping, vaccinations, Diane Rehm, Hillary Clinton, Scooter Libby, self-righteousness, non compos mentis constitutional arguments from both the Supreme Court and the Vice President, Africa and expatriatism. Happy birthday, United States!
