one last thing ... 'sacred circles.' oh, yeah.
well, in spite of the revival of 'disco' music at the party (thank god, no 'brick house'), i had an interesting conversation with a research biologist before i put my dancing shoes on. seems i need to revisit my position on genetic alteration of organisms. we discussed polarization in the media, ecosystem resilience, and other interesting concepts. a very enlightening evening. now i have to soak my liver in some mineral water to counteract the copious amounts of wine imbibed while debating points ... see you in the morning.
