“We got monks tomorrow, Desmond Tutu and Richard Gere here today, and a nude torch relay in the works,” Mr. Ballard said. “And I have no hope of leaving here without tripping over hundreds of members of the foreign media. I’ll tell you one thing: it won’t be boring.”

I miss life in the SF Bay Area. I mean, he could be describing any Wednesday of the year, not just the Wednesday during which an errant Naomi Campbell loogie doused the Olympic torch.

Did I mention that I also miss the Left Coast media, more specifically, my hometown rag of record?

    My kids have been somewhat obsessively talking about where they will live when they grow up. Little girl wants to live on a farm. Little boy initially wanted to live in the city, but now he says he wants to live in the suburbs. Sigh. Where did we go wrong?

  2. When you go back to the Left Coast, you may find my daughter there. She keeps talking about wanting to move back, but she is somehow homesick for the sunny part of the state where she has never lived. My boy is happy wherever he can go outside and pee on trees when he feels like it. Like in his current back yard, where I found him at it recently.
