The Valley · The plane land­ed ear­ly and there was even a gate ready so I got out of SFO PDQ, even gam­ing the stupid mono­rail, some­times if you miss the blue train you can hop the red one around the short half of the loop and catch it. But then 101 slow­er each mile south till the fire-truck block­ing two lanes down by 87. Any­how I got to watch the huge full moon grow small­er and whiter drift­ing up, but in the right place, just south of Or­a­cle, that the planes, star­like points of white light, were drift­ing above and be­low it against the dusk like fire­flies. And on the talk ra­dio two dif­fer­ent right-wingers say­ing that even Dubya is a pussy now, Amer­i­ca needs to blow up some more mosques (I’m not mak­ing this up) and on an­oth­er AM sta­tion, Chris­tian, a neo-Calvinist in a slow round car­toon voice: “You may think you love Je­sus but that’s not enough, on that glo­ri­ous day you might find your­self cast down!” I spun the di­al and with re­lief found some de­cent rock & rol­l, the on­ly sane thing on that Cal­i­for­nia high­way.
