Writing this from the airport in Minneapolis, halfway home from San Diego. After our training camp in Chula Vista ended on Thursday, I rented a car (a little black Chevy called the Cobalt — shouldn't they all be blue?) and drove up to Los Angeles. Erik, an old friend from middle school, lives in Altadena, right in the foothills at the northern edge of the megalopolis with his wife Melanie; I attended their wedding in July. He does lighting for movies and TV, and he's currently the gaffer for the UPN TV show Everybody Hates Chris, created and voice-overed by Chris Rock.
