Unlike Willie, I really could wait to get on the road again. That, however, is not among the options. Had to go to DC over the weekend, came back last night, and today I'm heading to the Northern Neck and then, again, to NoVA. Because what's a day without I-95?
As I was driving home last night I heard that William Safire died. I cannot recall ever reading one of his political op-ed pieces without becoming completely infuriated, however, I loved his On Language column. I wonder who will love language the way that he did now that he is gone?
