A legal and logical argument (PG)
A student went to take an exam from an old professor. The student knew he couldn't pass so he offered the prof a deal: If the professor answers his question, the student will not pass the exam. If the professor cannot answer, the student will get C.
The professor figured he knew more than the student and accepted the deal.
The student asked:
"What is that thing, that is legal, but not logic and what is that thing, that is neither legal, not logic?"
The professor couldn't answer and wrote the student C.
After the student left, the professor turned to his assistant and and asked, "Do you know the answer?"
The assistant replied, "It is legal, but not logical, that you have a young wife; it is logical but not legal, that she has a lover. And it is not legal nor logical, that you just wrote her lover a C!"

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.
