This morning Lynn and I were talking to Eddie at Psychobabble. Eddie is seemingly the last remaining coffeehouse intellectual/political/activist/radical/beatnik on the planet. He buys all his clothes at Goodwill, hangs out all day in a coffeehouse, and occasionally works as a sound guy in Hollywood.

We were talking about politics and Ralph Nader's candidacy (Nader is doing well enough in California to be considered a threat to Gore).

Eddie said, "Man, Gore is one of those people who I could vote for if he was a Republican. As a Republican, he'd be a ray of hope. As a Democrat, he's disgusting."

I asked him if he were going to protest at the Convention on Figueroa next month? He said, "Are you not? Who's side are you on, anyway?"

This all might have converted me to Nader, whom the ironically liberal/mostly status quo media are just blasting these days.
