By the way, did you happen to notice that southern California is on fire? Eric’s been covering the story for his real job over at San Diego City Beat. He has a full-length story about spending the night at Qualcomm Stadium and blog entries at Last Blog on Earth.
Eric said last night that he thinks the fires are being brought under control, and he is not worried about our neighborhood in the urban center of San Diego. As for me, I view the fires from the ancestral Goldstein home in New Hampshire. For someone who thinks about doom and gloom as much as I do, I always seem to miss out on actual disasters.
