McNeil's Rest Stop Ramblings

That's right! It's the long-awaited return of our beloved feature "McNeil's Rest Stop Ramblings." In a message entitled "Big Whoop," McNeil reports, "The kids and I made it to the Grand (ha) Canyon...but it's too foggy to see anything!!!" If I may add a non-McNeil note, this kind of reminds me of something Bill Taft once said about the Mississippi River, but that little anecdote is being slipped into my forthcoming collection of short stories MOVIE STARS so I shan't repeat it here. Oh, now you'll pay for the book, won't you? Hmm! It also makes me think about what Lynda Barry's ex-husband said about... the Grand Canyon!
