Howard Hughes and the Lingering White Scum

Someday, I'm going to gather up all my Howard Hughes titles...

Currently, it's 28˚F in Providence, with the windchill at 22˚F. The sun is out, and the sky is blue. Yesterday's snow didn't amount to much, and it's already melting away.

  • Fifty Synonyms for Anger

    Mostly sunny today. We reached 84˚F. I began reading Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Lord, the 20th century is comforting. My…
