Alice insisted on going for her morning walk at 2:30 am. Ouch. Normally I would go back to sleep afterwards, but she kept nosing me and pacing. Turns out she had to poop again. She hasn’t eaten her breakfast yet, either, so it must be that she’s not feeling well. 😥

This seems topical:

The state eventually outsourced most of the hard analysis about the consequences of various laws to universities, then stopped funding those universities, so the universities turned to corporations to fund them and the corporations paid for the results that they wanted on a truly epic scale, which then fed directly back into government making new law based on corporate-funded research
