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]( speak at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco.  Sarah and I are both excited to hear him speak.
