I SPENT a couple of hours today in the MVD with friend Jeffrey who is trying to get an Arizona driver's license. (Unfortunately, the secondary ID and his birth certificate were inadequate -- in spite of what they had told him on his last visit -- bureaucratic nightmare.) There were hundred's of tense adults and a fair number of unhappy children packed into this huge room waiting to be called. I got to thinking that the thing they most needed in there was a flash ukulele mob. But there was only one of me and I wasn't packing the uke. Next time.

IS IT JUST because I flew on United Airlines last week that I'm now hearing George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" on the radio so often? It's nice that he has a corporate sponsor.

FINALLY, AFTER 50 YEARS, the "Der" is back in "Wienerschnitzel." I love hot dogs but admittedly that restaurant must be confusing to Austrian tourists looking for a nice cut of veal. ~ link
