Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Ecstacy moves from the clubs to the deathbeds as the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is embarking upon a pilot program, under FDA approval, for giving the drug to terminal cancer patients to help them pass more gently into that good night.

MAPS, of course, has long advocated using mind/mood-altering substances for these purposes.

Categorically, of all drug-induced effects I’ve experienced (first- or secondhand), X is by far the most unsettling to me. The swings from mellowness to euphoria and back again can be downright eerie, and generally unsettling.

Last night, due to an inability to get to sleep in my own bed, I sacked out on the couch for the first time in forever.

I have to say, it turned out to be the soundest night of sleep I’ve had in a long while. I may just do it again tonight.

What’s more insidious: Having your blog monitored by the CIA, or by Bacon’s Information? Starting next month, Bacon’s MediaSource will keep tabs on some 250 of the “most reputable” blogs out there, for the benefit of filling in PR and corporate communications types on the latest buzzworthiness.

Reputable… I’d say that leaves me out. Actually, unless your blog’s name happens to be Instapundit, Wonkette or Volokh Conspiracy, it probably leaves you out too.
