I spent the night at a Holiday Inn in Lansing, Mich. I was in room 359. By sheer good fortune, room 363, two doors away, was the Hospitality Suite for some kind of gathering of Moose International, which is a fraternal organization dedicated -- as far as I can tell -- to staying up all night, drinking beer and shouting. I would be almost asleep at, say, 3 a.m., and a Moose would leave the hospitality suite, and he would pause directly outside my door and shout a clever remark back to his fellow Mooses and Moosettes, such as: "DON'T LET YOUR MEAT LOAF!!" You can imagine how hilarious everybody found this.

So today I'm going back to Miami, where it's quiet.
