The next article on John Dobson has a link to his LA Times obituary which I can't get because I've used up my quota of free articles.
I have a fond spot for Seattle--hence my wish they would win last night's game. I have a fond spot for San Francisco, too, having spent time there each of the summers of 1966-67-68. However, my fondness for Seattle outweighs that for San Fran. I lived in Seattle twice, once in early 1970 and again in late 1970 and early 1971. I intended to write a story about those times back then but time is too short this morning and, alas, the story will have to wait. I was lucky enough, however, to find a photo of this iconic billboard from that time period. I remember it so vividly. If I had perhaps washed ashore there in Seattle in slightly better times, it is quite likely I would still be here. Seattle is a great city and it's going to be fun to follow all the hoop-la as they make their second trip to the Super Bowl. You will be hearing a lot about Seattle here on the Morning Edition for the next couple of weeks.
Sorry 'bout the short edition this morning--I have a very long, full day ahead and simply but get moving ASAP! Happy Day, jp
