The answer isn’t to make electric/hybrid cars louder. The answer is to re-train ourselves that not all cars make the same kinds of noise anymore. Yes, that’s a challenge for the blind, but let’s not look backwards for a solution. Let’s not force the new world into the rubric of the old. Let’s look forward for a new solution.

Don’t get me wrong. I had a fabulous time this weekend at home. I’ll write about it more soon, probably on Our Intrepid Hero, but it did seem like everything was happening last weekend: birthday parties, trips down rivers, Burning Pirate, Batman opening, Jaws at the Castro… I could go on and on.


I turned the radio broadcast of the Cubs game on last night in the 6th inning and the first play I heard was Romero’s home run to break up Harden’s no hitter. D’oh. Harden’s pitched two brilliant games and not gotten a decision in either. We need to start hitting.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
