Route 66, Erick. To travel the old road today — stumbling across crumbling ghost towns and half abandoned communities, across the sprawling native American desert reservations, through cities where people work all the hours they aren’t sleeping and still cannot afford to go to the doctor – is to encounter a new despair [Photograph: David Levene]

Some version of gawd took pity on us out here in Cali… we had a complicated case of a kidnap victim turn up, 18 years later… it blew Kennedy almost out of the water. The story kept popping all day, finally by 3 pm when the police in the county she was found in (or taken from, by now I am confused) held a presser, I realised:
We Are Released! Teddy is a side dish! Hallelujah!
Then word came down the NUMMI plant, apparently the only car assembly plant in the state, will indeed close in March of next year. That did it… Ted got the dregs.
