On the aging article, I keep thinking that medical science ought to be going all out to figure out how to stop or reverse aging. Death due to aging is a 100% fatal condition, if you avoid everything else along the way.

I'm not particularly interested in immortality, but I'd like 500 or so healthy years to consider it.

Well, the bookbag I chose this morning to use for today's Powell's run = 10th anniversary of SF Fringe Festival. I got it on 09/10/01 as a b-day present after enjoying several SF Fringe shows.

Around here, "fringe" is called "beard."
