Something Came Up

The guy in the big black Jeep ran that stop sign and clobbered my little Toyota. That was Saturday afternoon. The Toyota’s right rear door was smashed beyond recognition and the rear bumper is a bit of a mess. There may be more damage of course – hidden. The car is drivable – so far – but now it’ll be weeks and weeks of paperwork and arguing this and that. No one was hurt, but such things take time. And of course there are the health issues. Things are not right at all. So let Donald Trump be Donald Trump and the world go on as it always does. Others can comment on that. Here it will be tedious but necessary personal nonsense for a bit – private matters. Expect another column when the insurance and repair stuff is nailed down. That may take a few days. The repairs may take a few weeks, so expect new photography when there’s a rental car to drive around to hunt up what’s cool and colorful and California, for those pages.

But for now…

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.
