every sperm is sacred

atwoodsouth dakota gov Mike Rounds explains why yesterday he signed a bill banning most abortions in the state: "In the history of the world, the true test of a civilization is how well people treat the most vulnerable and most helpless in their society."

those at abu ghraib? neither vulnerable nor helpless. same for those on those on death row because, you see, capital punishment is in effect in south dakota.

best strategy is to just stay in the womb, boys. it's ugly out here.

this morning A and i did timed sprints off the blocks to seed for the villanova meet on the 26th. since my breaststroke kick's still illegal and my fly timing's still off, i'm left with free and backstroke. not so bad.

while waiting for coach to fix the pace clock, F told me he's doing the st. andrews tri in june, and he asked me what he should wear, since this is his first tri. approx 2min later i had to leave the pool, but i came back considerable lighter and more buoyant; hence the times below. just *talk* of a race 3mos away is enough to trigger NervousPoops.

50 free: 33.6
50 back: 39.5
100 free: 1:13.2
100 back: 1:26.7

we'll do a timed 500 on thurs (excuse to eat shitload of ice cream wed nite).
