Fear of Clowns

February 19, a day which will live in gluttony 

Today is the anniversary of the day FDR ordered the internment of Japanese Americans. In celebration thereof, my friend Nick and I will be eating at the 24 Jap restaurants on Eat Street between Franklin and Lake. Well, not all of them are Japs, there's a couple of Mexican ones. Same thing, they all eat too much rice.

My friend Nick is one-quarter Jap, so I'm not really generalizing or being racist here.

I don't think its going to be too daunting of a task although Nick does, thus the early start. Its just like a quarter Jap to want to get up so early. We're not going to be having full meals at each, just like egg rolls or a bowl of soup. As a matter of course, I eat following in one sitting because I am hungry,

Twenty-four tiny meals seems to me just like eating a 20" double cheese pizza twice in the same day, except spread out over the whole day. I think it will be easy. This is for an article in a neighborhood newspaper, its not just madness unto itself. I'll be donating any money I make to some sort of hunger charity.

So stand by for pictures - I've demanded that I be able to come home for whatever Chinamen call a siesta.
