259 2004-02-20 Promised Land For millennia, people have tried to reach a spiritual promised land by fasting. Jesus did it. The Buddha did it. Monks and saints and new age gurus have done it.

260 2004-03-12 The Facts Don't Matter There's what happened, and there's the story that gets told about what happened. Sometimes the two things don't match up very well.
