Read Prof. Pine already

People like Professor Pine make me nervous to even touch a typewriter-shaped object because I know I will never be as prolific, observant or clever as her. And I don’t often link to her long, detailed posts because they don’t touch my areas of spesee-ality very much — them being, obviously, oil, natural resources, and amusing defenses of marriage.

Anyway, I just read much of her post on “vacation” and what can I say, she does more in a day of vacation than most of us do in a week of work, so go read it, and put her on the RSS, and see what’s happening in a real live corner of the Americas, not in the 1980s or 1910s or 1820s but right at this moment. Go read.
