Joel-Be-Gone

Sorry for the lack of a posting -- Joel's driving around the Keystone State for some reason, making barely audible and unnecessary cell phone calls. Something about apologizing for his abject lack of talent. He's missing another sizzler here today....

The Nightmare of the Wrong Book

     I'm going to California for two weeks and will travel pretty much the length of the state, supervising strike-slip faults and pondering tectonic plates. The North American plate and the Pacific plate are sliding past one another, fitfully,...

Fishin' For Dubya

   Been thinkin' bout the president's talk with the Texas reporters. It's like they're fishing, there's a big ol' bass they want to hook, but he won't bite. The bass will nibble at the hook, but he knows the game....
