    FBI raids | an ass beating by Florida | still no conceptual idea

    Samuel Mortimer Sep 22 '08 3

    Still tying to synthesize some rational idea to encompass this super charged site and program. I have a really vague idea about "the process of discovery" (yes, vague indeed) but I am having a hard time tying it into the specifics of the program. I feel like it meets the generic museum, interpretative/research center typology - but it is just not specific enough.

    It will come - it is just coming slower than I would prefer.

    That guy David Kernell had his apartment raided by the FBI a block from where I live on Saturday night. Apparently he and his roommates were having a party (goodbye party?) when they showed up about midnight. Crazy.

    I got a phone call from a local news station this morning asking me about David's involvement in SJU (Students for a Just University). I told them I didn't know him and didn't know anyone that did. Half that statement is true, the other half is a lie.

    I know what he did is illegal, but the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.
