Healthy habits

Protesting May Be Good for Your Health. (from "Taking part in protests and demonstrations can be good for your physical and mental health, a new British study suggests."

But there's another important reason to take part in protests. As a frequent flier, I find myself conditioned to acceptance of authority at airports. For example, I search myself for metal and watch what I say more than I ordinarily do. I'm conditioning myself to accept authority.

For every air trip, I should spend a few hours doing some free speech thing, to help break the conditioning.
