No new photos – no column – wrecked the car today – driving home from taking some architectural shots on Wilshire. The traffic in front of me suddenly slowed and I wasn’t able to brake in time – oops. There was a lot of damage. The airbags didn’t deploy (good) even if the windshield got all spidery-webby cracked (bad) – and now it gets both tedious and nasty – and expensive. No injuries – but things are a bit unsettled here. Posting will resume when things settle down – when and if they do.

About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.

    No injuries (at least physical ones) … thank goodness! Go get the needed reprieve.

    Hope it’s sorted out quickly and with minimal cost.

  3. One whistles along happily, then something completely unexpected happens. Your loyal readers will give you as much time as you need to recoup (and sometimes that is longer than you expect…the older the body, the greater the impact of the shock, and the delayed response!
