Monday June 14, 2004. On June 26, light rail service begins in the Twin Cities. A slew of bus routes will change -- to connect with the first light rail line, or for other reasons. Some routes will go out of existence; others will be born.

Today I went to the Transit Store in downtown Minneapolis to pick up new schedules. I got most of what I'll need; one schedule doesn't seem to be available yet. Nor does the new transit map.

***On to Shinder's News, where I hadn't been in a while. The "adult" section -- walled off from the rest of the store -- was gone. I suspect written and visual-recording porn has trouble competing with what's on the web.

***There were other things I'd intended to get done today, which didn't get done. I've been feeling blah, and I'm not sure why.

***Email: THE VIEW FROM ENTROPY HALL #34, by Ed Meskys; originally for APA Q. Material on: Toronto's trolleys, a nearby historical-recreation village (and others elsewhere), Lithuanian community (which seems to be predominantly Lutheran; this is roughly equivalent to an Irish community in North America being predominantly Greek Orthodox). Silverlock. sight-to-touch translation device for the blind. Patricia C. Wrede's Dragon books. The Borrowers series. The movie Homecoming, based on Cynthia Voigt's novel, and Cynthia Voigt's work in general. Marge Piercy's He, She, and It. If someone else had written Lord of the Rings. Letters of comment from rich brown (not to be confused with Rich Brown), Karen Anderson, Ruth Berman, Mark Blackman, Ned Brooks, Mark Mandel, and others. Mailing comments from John Boardman. Mailing comments to various people.
