Music Selection 11/17

Music selection for today: "Doing Fine" from Johnny High Ground (aka my pal Joe Rybicki), which is a very touching elegy for his father.

Joe's also posted a nice complementary of Old Man's War here. The view should be tempered (as he notes) by the fact that not only does he know me, but also by the fact that a minor character in the game is named after him. To be honest, this has less to do with a tip of the hat to Joe than the fact I am totally friggin awful with names, and I happened to be reading OPM (where Joe is an editor) at that moment. On the other hand, it's fun to put names of people you know into one's books. I recommend it to anyone.

I'll be out tomorrow but will be back on Friday.
