Stupid Management plus Odd Newspaper Things.

I slept later than I expected, but the guys pushing rollers were still working on the upper section of the parking lot/road when I got up. Now it's raining and that's expected to extend through Thursday. I don't really need the van until next Monday, although I wouldn't mind having it back in before then (and I don't want the parking violations folks to think it's abandoned). I may have to see if I can get a ride out to retrieve it at least through Thursday.

I found a number of interesting things in the May 18 WashPost:

Pulitzer Prize winning critic (and fan and habitue of Capclave), Michael Dirda, reviewed a book on Charles Fort and a book with his collected works.

Crazy spaceman doesn't quite get Dune.

And for my Seattle readers, a question to the travel section:

Q. We'll be flying to Seattle next month and then taking a ferry to Orcas Island. We hear that we'll need a passport for the trip. Is that true?
