Happy birthday Jamie!
I have Internets access for only about five minutes, so I just wanted to say that. Well, I also wanted to say that this is mostly true.
San Francisco is gorgeous, as usual. But I almost missed the whole thing because of the people in front of me on line at the airport in State College, who wanted to bring their rabbit with them (along with their six behemoth suitcases) and who would up in negotiations with the ground crew, the airline’s attorneys, and the captain of the plane. Next time I fly, I’m going to ask if I can bring my pony.
No, I didn’t get Jamie a pony for his birthday. I got him something else.

Happy Birthday, Jamie!
And, you know what they say, that rabbit’s dynamite. Which might explain why it’s on the NTSB watch list.Posted by corndog on 09/16 at 07:22 PM
I’m surprised a rabbit caused such a stir. Who was in charge of the TSA unit at State College, Michael? The Wizard Tim?Posted by on 09/16 at 07:33 PM

In the Internets World you’re still just as far away as ever, but in the real world you are so close by, I just have to say, “Hello”!
The view of Oakland from SF is pretty miserable because all you see are the shipping docks and warehouses and such. But I’m sure you’ve been over here on this side of the Bay too, and know how beautiful it is. So beautiful in fact, all the native Black folk are deep in the process of being forced out for all the usual gentrification reasons. In fact, the local neo-cons are totally jealous of New Orleans. They wish we had a levee here to speed the process along, just like down there.
On a happier note, Happy Birthday to Jamie! Glad you are enjoying your trip, Michael.Posted by on 09/16 at 09:01 PM
Our daughter was not in State College, I thought she was the only one to travel with a load worthy of Elizabeth Taylor. Happy birthday, Jamie...hold on to 14 as long as you caaaan…Posted by A. G. on 09/16 at 10:30 PM
Happy Birthday, Jamie!
Is it Beatles-related?Posted by eRobin on 09/16 at 11:41 PM
Is it a walrus?Posted by Ron Sullivan on 09/16 at 11:44 PM
Happy Birthday, Jamie.
My vote’s for the old Capitol mixes, and I bet he has ‘em memorized in 48 hours.Posted by Doghouse Riley on 09/17 at 01:16 AM

Happy Birthday Jamie. Hope you are having a fun day. (Maybe it’s an autographed photo of Ward Churchill!)Posted by on 09/17 at 01:37 PM
Better yet, a Ward Churchill wig!Posted by A. G. on 09/17 at 01:44 PM
Happy Birthday to the J-man, Dr. J, King James I, and all other Copy Guy-related names you can think of from the People’s Republic of Austin.Posted by norbizness on 09/17 at 11:20 PM
Relieved to know we have Monty Python fans high in the TSA ...Posted by jw on 09/17 at 11:49 PM
Very happy birthday to Jamie!Posted by grishaxxx on 09/18 at 04:43 AM
Happy birthday to your son…
And yes, San Francisco *is* beautiful. I’ve been here for sixth months now, and I wonder how one can ever move from this city.Posted by on 09/18 at 04:39 PM
luci, it’s easy. you live in SF long enough to fall deeply in love with it, and then the speculators and yuppies move in and price you out.
It works with Berkeley and Oakland as well. Go ahead: ask me how I know.Posted by Chris Clarke on 09/18 at 04:58 PM
Was it the Energizer Bunny? Happy B-Day, Jamie!Posted by on 09/19 at 08:18 AM
Yep, Paul’s great rocker is perfect for today. A good birthday to ya, Jamie.Posted by on 09/19 at 01:25 PM
Jebus, Michael. I’ve gotten like forty jillion visits from this post.
I’m gonna have to sign you up for the India Pale Ale of the Month Club or something to keep it going.Posted by Chris Clarke on 09/19 at 04:14 PM
A couple of days late, but many belated happy birthday wishes to Jamie! Bummer about the pony-free zone, though. Didja get him a snake?Posted by on 09/19 at 06:26 PM
I hope you got something equally nice for Jamie on his birthday. Happy birthday Jamie......way to go......
