Trip survived; podcast recorded

Despite Colorado and Wyoming’s best efforts, I did make it safely back to Portland very late Sunday night. I drove for 17 1/2 hours straight, which is a record for me and which actually wasn’t too bad. I guess I got in The Zone. Also, I was listening to a book-on-CD recording of “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” which was delightful.

Anyway, the long and short of it is that there’s no new “Snide Remarks” this week, what with the unexpected trip and the even more unexpected complications. But as a consolation prize, I do have a new podcast recording of last week’s column, for all interested parties. You can find it here.
