Day #21,494

Walk km 6046-6048: to Pender @ Abbott
Walk km 6048-6058 (15,436 to go): to Yaletown Station/(skytrain)/41st/Alberta/45th/Columbia/47th/Sophia/51st/Quebec/56th/Ontario/58th/Prince Edward/59th/Main/(bus)/Main/2nd/Quebec/seawalk/Pacific/Abbott/Pender

Movie #1445 (#242 this year): Carcasses (2009, Denis Cote)

The only interesting thing about this is trying to figure out if this is a documentary or fiction. I figured that it was a documentary until four characters with Down's Syndrome showed up.
However, IMDB labels this as a documentary. Whichever, it's extremely boring.

Book #335 (#36 this year): The Family(2008, Jeff Sharlet)

Non-fiction about the organization behind the "National Prayer Breakfast". Seems they've got their fingers into lots of other stuff not all of it savoury. Jeff had access to "Family" archives and he's pieced together the history quite well. However, it appears his sources were cut off when he had gotten up to the early 70s. After that the book takes a turn into other areas (Colorado Springs, Stonewall Jackson etc) that derail the narrative. Still, an interesting read.
