Amazing Race 7 began last night. What can I say? I paid more attention to extracting the sections of Aristotle's Politics that I want the kiddies to read. Peru was beautiful. I would have moved the llamas, no matter how long it took. The Survivor team is annoying, as is the roommates team. The self-proclaimed Hillbillies were fun, and I am sad that they have already been eliminated. My favorites: Susan/Pat (mother/son team), Brian/Greg (can be too jock-ish, but I dig the laissez-passer vibe), and Meredith/Gretchen (retired couple -- very smart). Thankfully, this season has fewer actor/model/beauty queens and prima donna/macho types.
