8/21/09 The Bay Bridge is closing Labor Day Weekend.

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Just in case you didn’t know. Here’s a nice little widget about it. I’m mostly posting this just because I like this little flash thing: [Edit 7/19/10: Oh, well, http://baybridgeinfo.org/ took it down.] Take BART (which will be running 24 hours a day) over Labor Day weekend and avoid accidentally driving into the Bay. [Edit […]

10/23/08 The Things He Carried

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Jeffrey Goldberg writes about the “hopelessness” of airport security in The Atlantic: During one secondary inspection, at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, I was wearing under my shirt a spectacular, only-in-America device called a “Beerbelly,” a neoprene sling that holds a polyurethane bladder and drinking tube. The Beerbelly, designed originally to sneak alcohol—up to 80 […]

5/27/08 Contrasts

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

This kind of thing (previously) seems to tend to happen right around the time I’m about to take a long trip on Amtrak. Or maybe that’s when I most notice it. I did ride 13 hours on Amtrak last Thursday, and it was pretty uneventful and relaxing. It was also supposed to be an 11-hour […]

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Say you wanted to go from Oakland, California to Sacramento, California, a distance of 80 miles, to catch a Friday night Sacramento Rivercats game. (They’re a minor-league baseball team.) And you wanted to take public transit and come back the same night. That seems possible.

That’s exactly the kind of thing I try to avoid doing at work. Oh, yeah, I was supposed to talk about adjectives, like […]

3/20/01 derailed!

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Um, well, yeah, great. Traveling by train seems to have its risks. The recent Amtrak derailment runs the risk of derailing our ability to enjoy our upcoming trip…. On a brighter note, it’s spring, and it actually feels like it. See you in a couple weeks, Nick….
