Monty and I got stoned and went to DC tonight. It was spooky as hell there. For one, there were hardly any people out, and the people we did pass were silent. And also the White House has a massive barricade around it. The whole city just feels really sad and dire. It is certainly the end days for a number things. I just hope it is not the end of everything once and for all. Well: we had fun anyway, in spite of the wreath of darkness which hangs over this place.
