China: capitalist roaders

Drive, he said. Ted Conover goes on a week-long road trip with some Chinese car owners. Excellent reportage coupled with some worrying numbers that bode badly for humanity: NYT

Otherwise, how about this Robert Creeley poem. I Know a Man:

As I sd to my
friend, because I am
always talking, -- John, I

sd, which was not his
name, the darkness sur-
rounds us, what

can we do against
it, or else, shall we &
why not, buy a goddamn big car,

drive, he sd, for
christ's sake, look
out where yr going.
