    I leave town for two weeks, and look what happens

    While the cat’s away.

    I’m into my second week of my voyage through Israel, and look what happened to my hometown (as he chokes a little on his hummus) of Ithaca, NY.

    Never was like that before. Uh hum.

    Can’t decide whether this means I should leave town more or less often.

    Nothing new here, professor. Years ago Ithaca was described as…

    “a socialist village surrounded by fifty miles of wilderness.

    “The only place within two hundred miles where you can buy a tie-dyed tee-shirt and a string of beads.

    “Home of the ‘Ithacar,’ a smoke-belching, twenty five year old, rust bucket Volvo.” Now of course, everyone drives a Pious, er, Prius. (Oops, not your wheels are they? Beg pardon.)

    Probably time to toss your Ithaca Dollars, though.

    Things are good; the deer will keep the rhododendrons from taking over your garden while you’re away, the lake trout are running, and Big Red and Ezra’s brood is doing nicely. (For those of you who might be interested or have children educational and great fun – have a look.)

    It’ll all be here when you get back. Be safe.

    I’m still voting for applying for a nice Law Prof job at Texas Tech…. how can you not love working in a place who’s motto is “Guns Up!”….. Escape while you can and Texas citizenship is still open – in a couple of years we’re going to have to take applications.
