It was a week of travel in California that has now ended. The state was running over a hundred most of the time and Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley was difficult to live in. I had forgotten how uncomfortable it can get.

It was good to be on another coast, however. It puts things in perspective. For example, the daily newspapers I read out there barely covered national or international news. And, these are large-circulation papers. I didn't get to watch much TV but the little I saw had local news -- the same car-crashes, shootings and local tragedies that keep local TV news going everywhere. The mayor of San Jose was indicted for bribery, though, which was something new.

It's good to be home.
