Eastward, ha

book/daddy is heading to New York for BookExpo and then to D.C., on yet another groundbreaking scholarly endeavor. In short, book/daddy will be hanging out with the Eastern elites, the publishing industry old-money intelligentsia -- like the guy at BookExpo one year dressed as a giant basketball.

Needless to say, these are primitive, dangerous territories book/daddy will be venturing into. He has no clear idea about wireless internet access. So postings this week and early next may get sporadic, interdicted or just plain desparate.

Send help. Send vodka tonics with limes.
