Comment Re:When I was a kid we thought America was free (Score 1) 475 475

I read Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago and Cancer Ward about 10 years ago and I remember first being shocked at the brutality and callousness a government could have for their own people, and second astounded that the US was ever afraid of the USSR. The society depicted by Solzhenitsyn seemed to me to be so dysfunctional and unworkable it could inevitably only result in collapse.

Etymotic make some excellent ear buds. I bought a pair for around $300 about 7-8 years ago and they still work great today. I originally got them for noise cancellation on air flights and I didn't want the big BOSE over the ear headphones. With the foam tip inserts they block nearly all outside noise. The only drawback to them is they get a little uncomfortable if you haven't broken in the inserts already.
