At One of America's Edges

WE RAN OUT ON THE TORRENTIAL RAINS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, and have taken refuge up along the Canadian border at Sandpoint, Idaho about 45 minutes south of the Canadian Border.

I'd like to report that waves of Democratic Refugees from the evil empire are clogging the roads and assaulting the border outposts of the Canadian People's Republic, but I see nary a soul moving that way with anything other than bagging a moose on the mind.

More later except to note this is a VERY HEAVILY ARMED section of the country.

Don't question the war and the guns will stay away.

Did you bring any of the garlic dipped Lileks signs?

Now you're in my neck of the woods. If you enjoy your stay, don't tell anybody that, but try to come back with the youngster next summer when Silverwood is open.

You into ghostly visitations, ST? Butler died last fall. :)

Make it an extended stay, the rains are supposed to return on Tuesday. Don't know about your corner of Southern California, but here in San Diego we're at c20" for the year. And, last I heard, the new storms are supposed to last a week.

When California falls into the ocean it won't be earthquakes, but mudslides. :)

re Butler, then'll I'll tell him myself when I
see him in hell.

I've spent many days in Sandpoint, where I represented the former owners of Schweitzer Mountain in their fight to the death with the largest bank in the State.

I don't know about the heavily-armed stuff; never saw it when I was there, even after Mark Furman came to town to live. But lots and lots of nice people, scenery to die for (not necessarily by gunshot wound), Whiskey Jack Road and Kootenai Point thrusting out into Lake Pend Oreille.

Good stuff.

You may expect more heavy trafic now when Canada is not going to participate on antimisille protection of continent.
Joke - no joke: Paul Martin will accept USA rocket
only under condition that USA will fire rocket against attacker over Canadian territory with agreement of Canadian government.
USA should under this condition think about
telephone number 1- 800-????? to let Paul Martin know- antimisille rocket si going to destroy North
Korean misille.
This is fact. Not a joke.
