LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Most blacklists are designed to intimidate. But thousands of Americans are clamoring to join one drawn up by the National Rifle Association.

today

Sometime early in the morning we got a light rain here. Though I was up I didn't hear anything since I was listening to music via headphones. The smell was incredible after all that smoke we had earlier this week.

When I first laid down to go to sleep I coughed. A few minutes later I coughed more. That kept going on until I thought I was going to cough my lungs out. After I scrounged around a bit I found cough syrup that expired today. I took it anyway. By the time I woke up the cough was gone, so, yay!

After I woke up I watched some college football. I flipped between the USC vs. Washington State and the Miami vs. Virginia Tech games. Both were enjoyable. Later was "Final Fantasy: the Spirits Within" on the Sci-Fi Channel.
