hello from Iron Mountain!
favorite poet for May 1, 2009: "One has to become an anarchist egg in order to seek freedom and peace.... Therefore 'the heaviest of struggles in the world' is the battle against myself, who is so well tamed in the world. I feel indeed that the purest and strongest untamed passion is necessary in order to unravel the bindings of 'rightness'". (Kim Seung-hee, from "I Want to Hijack an Airplane")
ji bo says, "when hijacking plane, best to have good lawyer waiting at airport!"
