Staying in shape is
fine, but isn't it better to become grotesquely fat?I think the process would be great: eating a lot and being
lazy. But you probably wouldn't feel good about yourself.
This is what a democracy-teepee condom looks like.
"They never told me I couldn't build a 30-foot teepee greenhouse temple of democracy," says Sage Radachowsky.
Duly noted. And so sometime this afternoon he'll start building one.
We first met Radachowsky in the midst of Occupy Boston's first snowstorm, when he showed up with a plan to keep the camp warm all winter: small, cheap, coffin-sized tiny-house trailers

THIS THE TRUST FUND CLUB?” shouted an #OccupyBoston protester in a black
hoodie, bandana and backpack, through the big metal fence surrounding Harvard Yard, at
around 10PM last Wednesday night -- the first night of #OccupyHarvard. Inside, a
small circle of frustrated freshman in sweatpants and maroon baseball
caps were yelling at Occupiers to “go home.
Because, seriously? That'd be a real bummer.
As promised, KARL ROVE's political action group CROSSROADS GPS is spending over a half-million bucks to flood Massachusetts airwaves with this new 30-second slop-bucket of a campaign ad (see below), which attempts to smear Scotto Brow's surging Senate opponent ELIZABETH WARREN by handcuffing her to the Occupy movement.
Constructing a menu to herald the end of our corporeal
existence is not a task that most of us are often faced with. For chefs who spend
their day-to-day in a dreamy culinary realm filled with dishes heaped with
shaved truffle--and those same dishes piled in a dish pit--the last supper is

A long day of skiing can take quite a toll your body. Anyone who's ever dove headfirst down a double-black can attest to this -- you know the deal, where the skis end up in the woods and you end up eating a pile of powder.

so it wasn't raining when we got here.

Harvard students, staff, faculty, and community members will gather at Harvard Yard tomorrow at 7 PM for an Occupy Harvard general assembly. At 8 PM, the protesters will create an encampment on Harvard Yard, with plans to occupy the yard indefinitely.
"This is an occupation in solidarity with the global Occupy movement," read a press release from Occupy Harvard, "and with the intent of calling attention to the growing corporatization of higher education."
