Euphemism of the Day: "Interior Protection System." The name given to the plastic wrap that mechanics drape over automobile seats and floormats to prevent grease and dirt from staining the fabric. I saw this euphemism this morning as I walked by an auto repair center South of Market. The rolls of plastic were on a metal rack with the words "Interior Protection System" in large red letters above the plastic rolls. Tonight Sarah and I are going to see [E.
O. Wilson](http://dnr.metrokc.gov/swd/naturalconnections/edward_wilson_bio.htm) speak at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. Sarah and I are both excited to hear him speak.
