Fleet Week has arrived

And with it, the Blue Angels practicing their strafing runs, er, acrobatics, barely above our city's rooftops.

And so for one magical week, San Franciscans get to pretend they live in Gaza.

At last a blog

I created this blog because I needed someone besides my long-suffering girlfriend to rant to. No, scratch that. I guess you could call me a late-adopter, but I finally realized a blog was what I was looking for as an outlet for expressing the ideas that I've had floating around for a couple years now, and it's simple enough to get started.

I'll have a bit more about myself and what this blog is about in the near future.

My blog name and URL are a reference to Nim Chimpsky, a "famous ape" who learned sign language and was himself a namesake of Noam Chomsky. It fits me since I study and work in psychology, but I'm also a political junkie and occasional activist of the anarchist persuasion. The title is a reference to some 70's song I can't name.
