On September 11, I was on leave from work, writing a long description of my just-completed three-week trip to New England. I had no idea what had happened until a friend called from California somewhere around 2pm. As a result, I always felt that I had missed a fair amount of the feeling of September 11...

Tom Cruise's "Minority Report" movie had a few scenes filmed in DC. If you blink, you'll miss them. There's one scene, though, where Tom has just had an eye transplant and sneaks back into the tank to grab the "minority report" prescience person. You see him lurking after a face-changing drug takes...

While I was bored silly in Cape Cod, some couple suggested that I take a whale-watching boat trip.
