Blood, Sweat, and Tears

Give blood this Friday at Pauley Ballroom (on top of the Cal student store) between 10am and 4pm. I'll be there around 11am so I can have a blood-giving race with Paul and so I can lend him some XTC CDs. Last time, Mr. Bruno walloped me and gave his pint in half the time I did, but that's because my assistant forgot to tighten my tourniquet. He also owes me a nickel because my assistant exclaimed that I had great veins, just as I had predicted.

No matter what your political affiliation, whether you're a protectionist or a proponent of free trade, whether your hero is Ralph Nader or Pat Robertson, whether you want the US out and the UN in or you're the president of Haliburton, I think we can all agree that giving blood is an free, easy, and almost painless way to save three lives. Plus you get free juice and cookies. It's better than church.
