Oh, one last thing. I read a really good book I recommend you check out. Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle is a complex and intriguing story about the haves and have nots in Southern California.

I bought it at the Powells in the Portland Airport because of an employee recommendation hand-written and affixed to the shelf upon which the book sat. It's a commendable practice by Powells City of Books, and yet another reason it's the world's best book store. All hail:
