I think that part of it comes down to politicians in places like California, urgently need a large influx of people who will vote to keep them in power. They fear that many of their loyal Subjects are starting to realize they are being Royally screwed and it only a matter of time before they run out of other peoples money.

I was at the dentist a wile back and had a small cavity up by the gum line. So instead of drilling, she used a laser to blast it out. Pretty cool, completely painless and sort of sounds like the worlds smallest machine gun. She let me play with it, the beam comes up a fiber optic to a hand piece and is tightly focused to a small spot you can set to about 2-10mm or so, I guess so you don't bast a hole out the other side of your patient's head.

The laser is CO2, so you can't see it but there are guide beams to get you lined up. I tried on a bad crown and it is very impressive. It pulses about 8 or 10 times a second and with each pop a little bit of ceramic is simply vaporized...John

In the interest of diversity, I have been invited to go to their web site and "self identify".
I expect I am supposed to select "Dumpy middle aged white guy" but I have a choice, so I was thinking about spending a year as an African American woman. The down side is the line for the lady's restroom is always longer but that opens up a whole range of trans/flexible gender options.
 In truth I'm not looking for a lifestyle change, I just want annoy the Bureaucrats. So I guess I'll go with "non person of color", see how that flies. If you don't here from me it probably means I've been shipped off to the reeducation camp to have a proper set of progressive values installed.

Well, I hear spring is nice in the Ural mountains, comes late though...John

So I am driving around listening to News radio and all I hear are reports of people in line to vote saying "I don't like the way the county is going" or "I'm voting for change", blah blah, blah.

Last I looked, the economy was doing pretty good, taxes are lower, we are finally doing something about China and pretty much anyone who wants a job can get one.

I though that was change...John

I thought it was politically incorrect to call someone a "crazy old white dude". Shouldn't it be something like, "mentally flexible", no that's not it.

 How about "reality neutral", "youthfully challenged", I think Ill stop there.

"dude's" probably OK though...John
