Brother Joe made it to Seattle on his humanitarian mission to Yap in Micronesia before being told to stand down, and then scrambling for a way back east on the busiest travel week of the year. Fortunately, he made it and got to visit for Thanksgiving yesterday. Much to give thanks for.
He also sent on this great column, “Gertrude Stein was right,” bemoaning the monotonous uniformity of America. A good read.
