Underground Railroad

One of Elizabeth and my three stops in Cincinnati was the National Underground Railroad Museum, sandwiched between the football and baseball stadiums.

The museum was kind of hokey—we managed to arrive at the same time that 400 members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The line was out the door. Fortunately the line moved quickly and […]


Today I am taking a one night holiday trip to Cincinnati—to partake of three of its most famous attractions.

The hotel should have free wifi, so expect photos and more.

International Travel

As most of you are aware, I travel some—and for the last few weeks I haven’t really traveled more than a few miles from where I am sleeping.

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be staying in a very dark cave—although it will seem […]

Dear Ms. Cell Phone Talker

I realize that you were trying to do three things at once in your red car tonight: talk on the cell phone, use the ATM, and try to think.
