Road trip report: 

Best business name: "Putz n Glo"--miniature golf course near Mt. Rushmore.

Best business concept: Wings, Pizza and Tanning (Cheyenne, Wyoming).

Best sign: On I-90, outside the small town of Murdo, South Dakota. Weathered, almost decaying. It says 

"This is it! Murdo!" 

I wish I had taken a picture.** 

Musical highpoint: Sir Victor Uwaifo on the BBC. 

Recommended cafes for blogging: Pier 347 in Pierre, S.D.. Coal Creek Coffee Company in Laramie, Wyoming.

All college radio is now better than all non-college radio.

The state of mainstream, altless country music is even worse than the state of presidential nominnee acceptance speeches. I didn't hear one recent song that wasn't phony.

Bob is better than Jack. And Jill.

--If anyone has a photo, I will post it. The sign may say "Here it is! Murdo!" ...
