Blogging from me will be sporadic for the next few weeks because I'm in Idaho, trying to finish a book and interacting with nature. Although I'm hoping there won't be too much interaction. The local paper, The Idaho Mountain Express and Guide, has a story this week headlined Highway collision kills moose, concerning a local motorist who hit an unfortunate moose on Highway 75, a major road here that, tragically, lacks a moose lane. There's also a letter to the editor from a resident who is extremely irate about sheep poop on the bike trail. "Before I sat down to write this letter," he states, "I had to make sure my shorts didn't have bits of sheep poop on them."
So it's not necessarily a natural paradise here in Idaho. We have our problems in Miami -- live sharks on the People Mover, for example -- but we don't have to worry about moose on our roads, and only after certain major South Beach social events do we have to check our shorts for sheep poop.
Anyway, I'll be popping up on the blog from time to time with updates as warranted. Meanwhile, stay cool out there.
