My Tombstone article was published last weekend in the Washington Post Magazine. Great to see it come to fruition, although I feel as if I could yet write a great deal more - and perhaps will, for that matter.

New Look

Figured it was time to redecorate around here again. Going for a slightly more serious, dignified look this time around. I think this is version 3.0. Come in, relax, make yourself at home. Don't put your feet on the coffee table, though, please.
