So, a comrade from CAJA has this great fun-raising idea, easy money. You just go down to Bio-Life Plasma Services and hold out your arm. In no time your a little light headed but twenty dollars richer. WEELLL. What do they say about easy money?
Thats right, I tried it today. After filling out endless forms and getting a physical and sitting around for two hours Im finally led into the atrium, a shiny techno- chamber where several dozen droids lay lined up in naugahide recliners, hooked up by plastic tubes to blinking , buzzing machines. White coated technicians scurry from machine to machine, leading droids in and out, and carrying bags of plasma to the central deposit area. We're talking about a scene right out of Matrix. I got stabbed and hooked up to" my " machine and tried to read my New Left Review but the automatic tournequet kept squeezing my arm. I think Ill get a real job and donate an hour a week to social justice.
