“Look,” said Spring,
sushi!” She was
pointing to some pictures
of Spam sushi on the computer screen.
Now, I like Spam. Don't knock it until you actually try it (and thousands
of Hawaians can't be wrong). And yes, I like rice (especially the white
rice at the local Spanish/Mexican/Cuban restaurant down the street).
But mixed together as sushi?
“Ah, no,” I said.
“But you like Spam.”
“And you like rice, right?”
“So?” She sat there next to me, giving me this don't tell me you

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
