Today was a good day. I managed to fit in a little power walk around the pond. In other news, Fanta is rapidly gaining on its goal, and here's a funny quote from Newsweek's perspectives section. "Spitting on the ground is dangerous to your health, and spit contains infectious diseases. But with one small bag in your hands, your health will always be invincible" printed on white spit bags handed out in China.

I wonder if spitting in public will become a new national taboo in China. If that happens, maybe a hundred years from now, the idea of spitting on the street would be as unthinkable as the idea of sleeping with your grandma is to Americans.
