Programming Note

This Sunday I'm going to Puerto Rico for ten days. I've been travelling more than ever lately. I went to both Europe and North Africa twice in three months, and I went to the East Coast twice in one week. But this time Shelly and I are going on an actual vacation. You know, sun, sand, sleeping in, dining out, hiking, snorkeling, that sort of thing.

Mary Madigan and Jeremy Brown will guest-blog while I'm lounging around on the beach. They're welcome to post before I leave, too, so watch for their bylines.

Poor you! I want to be Michael J. Totten.

Have fun and don't miss the rain forest or the snorkeling off the east end of the island.

Make sure you check out the Bacardi factory. Fun and informative, with free booze!

Have lots of fun - and take pictures.

Meanwhile, I’ll be blogging in beautiful downtown Hoboken, enjoying the brisk -2 degree wind chill breezes blowing off the Hudson. Nothing can compare to that.

as someone living on the windy oceany southwestern side of Oregon, where i awoke to ice on the car this morning and a car heater that just quit, i just want to say, "Puerto Rico, eh? You bastard". But i mean it in the nicest way.

Have a good trip, Michael.

Michael:

You absolutely MUST check out the Gallery Inn in Old San Juan. It's an amazing B&B -- lots of charm.

Have a great time. You surely deserve it. I totally loved your post about Hitch etc. Thank you.
