Leaving Honolulu meant leaving the 50 States – and since I chose United Airlines Flight 154 – I was going to get a whole lot of flying in that day.
UA 154 is the westbound Island Hopper, going from Honolulu to Majuro to Kwajalein to Kosrae to […]
It was déjà vu: For a second time in my life, I heard the edge of a breaking news story and I instantly knew that the rest of the story was going to be painful.
This time it was that there had been another mass shooting, this time at a nightclub in Orlando. That […]
I’m ending the year (right now) at 116 books, plus a second book that I’ve not finished because, well… this time because it’s terrible.
Tonight I’m going to start reading what’s either book 117 or book 1: The Eternal Zero (Naoki Hyakuta; translated by Chris Brynne and Paul Rubin). The book was just translated into […]
I’m happy to report that 2015 had a lot of travel — more than it should have. I managed to snag my 50th US State and two more territories (or whatever you call them), plus an around the world trip that hit up a lot of amazing places. I also flew my first airline where […]

Last Sunday, as promised, I made it to the Festival of the Steel Phallus in suburban(ish) Tokyo, specifically Kawasaki.
Deciding what time to arrive was tricky. […]

And it occurred to me that back in January, when I was in Bloomington, I’d visited my safe deposit box and found all my old […]
Generally speaking, I’m a flaming Liberal.
Except when it comes to guns and hunting. And this is where my stances are complicated. Guns are, generally speaking, bad. They deserve heavy regulation. There’s no need for anybody in New York City to carry a gun.
In Barrow, Alaska, where I am now, hunting and guns are […]
Today is, for me, a 32 hour day. I plan on spending it sleeping, reading, napping, some other activities, dinner, and sleeping.
