I want to join one of those gigantic Canadian bands like Arcade Fire or Broken Social Scene, as a triangle player or something. Not that I'm even much of a fan of either, but they look like they're having such a fun time. Maybe this only works if you're Canadian?

I am currently enjoying the always reliable Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation, which, if you haven't read it (and you probably have), is a very funny and insightful account of her trip around the country gawking at relics and monuments to assassinated presidents.

As she admits, this journey reflects some angst about the current leader of the free world.
