Car alarms. I hate them.

Just now, looking down from my apartment, I watched a pedestrian accidentally bump a car while walking between two cars to the sidewalk. The car alarm went off. And the noise of that alarm set off another car alarm.

Outside the lab environment, however, they maintained the social distance dictated by the mores of the times. In an era when institutional racism was the norm, Thomas was classified, and paid, as a janitor, despite the fact that by the mid 1930s he was doing the work of a postdoctoral researcher in Blalock's lab.

Now that the initiation whippings and various unspeakable hazings are finally over, I've resigned myself to haphazardly filling up these little boxes with words.
