    "That’s pretty much what the vampire does, after all. He wakes up…and says something like, “In order to remain undead, I must steal the life force of someone whose fate matters less to me than my own.” I’ve always supposed that Wall Street traders utter essentially the same sentence. My guess is that as long as people act toward their fellows in exploitative and selfish ways, the vampire will be with us."

    "She tastes like sunlight,
    And she’s always gonna be there in the back of your mind,
    Is there time to rewind?
    Were you born to live or born to die?
    Forget and forgive, there’s a place you can live."
    Peace, California Daze
