A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Fifty State Ring And Run Crime Spree (From 2007)

(Working around the clock at this point. That means you get re-runs from 2007. You have Internet Alzheimer’s anyway, so anything more than a year old is new again anyway. Anyway. )

I wondered if there was a way to visit every state in the Union without actually going there. Those rectangular ones with two time zones and one congressman are sort of daunting to a denizen of the coast. Mysterious. But every state has a vibe, more or less; and no matter what anyone tells you about how uniform the culture is getting, I’ve always been struck by how different the same thing can be depending on where you are. So, we offer humbly, the same thing in fifty places at least fifty years ago. Not sure what it’s all like now. That would involve leaving my house.


Washington, D.C. :
Florida:More tomorrow, and until one of us gets bored or I get to Samoa.

  1. I’m adooring this crime spree so far and hope I don’t get caught. Can’t wait till tomorrow.

    I’m thinking that maybe you got a lot of orders for step stools.

  2. This was one of the first of your posts that I read.

    2007? Have I really been coming here that long?

  3. Now, how did you do that? All from the net… but must have taken a long time to piece together. I can’t decide on a favorite either: toss up between Alabama and Florida.
