Reminder: Talk tonight in San Francisco

I'll speaking on World Travel in Troubled Economic Times at 7 p.m. tonight at Get Lost Books in San Francisco.

My talk got a nice writeup in the San Francisco Bay Guardian as their pick of this week's events, as well as a plug on "7 × 7", and the space is small. We'll have plenty of books for sale, but try to get there early if you want a seat.

Data point: Yesterday, the day after the inauguration, I flew on Air France from Paris to San Francisco International Airport. "How are you?," asked the smiling Customs and Border Protection officer. "Happy to be coming home to a country with a different President than when I left last week," I replied. He smiled more broadly. "But where are the welcoming pictures of our new President?", I asked He looked around in some alarm, but there weren't any in the international arrivals area (or anywhere else in the airport). "We ought to have have them. They must not be here yet. I'll have someone look into that right away."
