Holy cow, I wrote a book!
Hurricane Isabel made a mess of my weekend travel plans, so I decided, "If you can't
beat 'em, join 'em." My outbound flight was cancelled, and even with the best possible
substitution - a flight out the very next day - losing a day on a weekend trip pretty
much kills it. So I extended it to a weeklong vacation. Consequently, don't expect
to see many updates from me for the next week or so. I've been led to understand that
some parts of Europe have Internet access (amazing!), so maybe I can sneak something
in, but don't count on it.
