Tiger! Tiger! or The Stars My Destination is really an amazing read.

Not a coffee aficionado, being medically prohibited from much caffeine for a very long time. Now I find myself able to enjoy the equivalent of about a cup of coffee a day. I find some popular styles taste like poison. Starbucks tastes scorched to me. So I have no problem with the quick and easy instant solution.

Tea, on the other hand has been a useful and enjoyable beverage. So many beverages we call tea. I like the red (rooibos) for something different with a couple fingers of almond milk. Decaf green tea provably helps me sleep. Likely because of the L-theanine it contains. And now that I can do a bit of caffeine, genmaicha is pretty awesome in the day.

Having been without coffee and now allowed a bit again, I make the following observation; folks able to take advantage of the drug caffeine have a decided productivity advantage over those unable to use it. Don't take that boost for granted. You might not always have it.

Speaking of YouTube relaxation and sleep inducers, I'll often put on an Alan Watts lecture. This has to be one of the most recorded guys of his time. Must be 1000's of them. Well worth listening to while alert I'm sure, but I find I drift off pretty quickly if reclining.

And Clinton's campaign is certainly responding to this threat. Today, my social media feeds are blanketed with blurbs questioning Sanders participation in the civil rights movement and alleging he dodged military service.
