A Fool on the Road

This Fool will be traveling on business through Wednesday, so blogging will probably be a sometime thing at best. It will probably include a report on hotel internet access in far distant Crescent City, California (about as far north as one can go along the coast and still be in California), which is among my destinations.

I was hoping to commend to you several worthy items from this weekend's Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review, but the Times itself prevents me. In their dubious wisdom, the Powers at the paper have placed all of their 'Calendar Live' content -- film, theater, music, art and, yes, books -- on to a pay/subscription-only basis. 7-day subscribers to the paper can access this material as part of their subscription (if they dig up their account number and register); everyone else gets to pay $4.95 per month. Unlike many papers, which have articles up for free on the day they appear and then move them to a pay archive, the L A Times now stands by the noble principle that No One Reads for Free. Harrumph.
