Another strange juxtaposition:

Just put a sheaf of Monthly Review's in a bookshelf that contains, among other things, Scientology pamphlets about faith healing that I got from the "L. Ron Hubbard Life Experience Museum" in L.A. It was hot, the thing was air conditioned, and I have somewhat of an interest in Scientology, although not really to the level of actually being part of it. The museum itself was schlocky in the extreme, an example of what unbridled hero worship produces.

Personally, I'm getting to the age where it's no longer possible to just eat what I want without suffering consequences, so I'm more concerned with "Dietetics: the modern science of physical health" than with Dianetics.
