Alert reader Rick was properly nonplussed by the link in my previous post — mea culpa for trying to do too many things at the same time. Instead of linking to the article I wanted to direct you do, it gave you a nice Mapquest map of downtown San Mateo, California! To make matters worse, I don’t remember what the article was. Thank you, Rick, for bringing it all to my attention. To make up for my boo-boo, here’s a link to a nicely titled essay by Joe Conason. Let us prey, indeed!
