I asked Christi what she thought of my break-away-republic manifesto and she avoided answering me directly. I had been drinking some soynog when I wrote it. She seems to think it's goofy. Here's my attempt at keeping a pretentious jounral to be reprinted when I am a famous composer and she thinks I'm a bit overly optomistic about how change will come about. Artists are supposed to have goofy politcal views. Anyway, who was it that said, "A reasonable person adapts to fit her environment, whereas an unreasonable person seeks to adapt her environment to fit her. Therefore all change comes from unreasonable people."
