I write you from most of a day into the future, in Japan. Know this about the future: Airport delays, in all their forms, are still real and terrible, and can keep bloggers from getting someplace with free wi-fi until well after the capacity for reason has escaped them. Also, in the future all the cars are very small, and vending machines have gained the right to vote.
I'll be back tonight having slept even further into the future. In the meantime, might I suggest this Bob Caruthers post I shunted into the middle of the Afternoon VEB Dead Zone for no reason last week?
