Shutting down the websites for the week – stuff to do prior to being admitted to the hospital on Friday morning for an unpleasant procedure which will no doubt go well – so unless they screw up on Friday afternoon, which is unlikely, it will be back home safe and sound by early evening. Then it’s back to the commentary here, and photographing everything in sight. Life goes on. It always does. This is just one week.

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.

    You created a dependency in your readers. You are also an inspiration to people sick of watching Gresham’s Law operate in the arena of cultural and political commentary. The worst are full of passionate intensity, and they get the most clicks. Just Above Sunset pushes against that current.
