One of my friends talked about the Red or Blue thing yesterday. He was exactly in the middle too, I however, was a lovely shade of light, light pink.

yeah, assigning a left/right lable for knowledge of midwestern geography is a bit sloppy. this quiz would make a many chicagoans more "red" than they'd normally be.

Whenever the "Annals of Improbably Research," (brought to you by the talented group who used to produce the "Journal of Irreproducable Results") has its annual Ig-Nobel Prize ceremeny, it will often feature a delegation from NEMC, the "Non-Extremists for Moderate Change." I think you folks who live in a permanent state of purple should consider joining up.
OTOH, I recall that whenever NEMC goes and protests stasis and/or rapid progress, they usually get beaten up: "In every country except Finland, NEMC members have been greeted with scorn, projectiles, violent attack, and police arrest. At the medical convention in Paris, they were assaulted, verbally and physically, by animal rights protesters, researchers, physicians, medical administrators, and bystanders."

Yeah, i mentioned NEMC
http://kisrael.com/viewblog.cgi?date=2003.08.06 -- hadn't heard much about the violence, is that gossip column for real?
--Kirk Tue Jul 20 10:47:39 2004
I'd say no-- the AIR posts pictures and various updates about them, or did back when I read the AIR, and the photos were always amusingly staged.
--LAN3 Tue Jul 20 11:45:05 2004
Well, besides, they're non-extremists for moderate change, and I'm an extremist moderate, so...

The thing I can't tell is whether the guy who linked to, on 8/6/03, is affiliated with the genuine (however fictional) group.
