Morro Rock

Photos from Morro Bay

28 August 2015

On our trip up the coast, we stayed in Morro Bay, famous for that big rock in the photo–Morro Rock. The pictures may be a bit boring. They still strike me from standing there next to it. The rock is one of the Nine Sisters–nine volcanic peaks and hills in San Luis Obispo county. It’s just a huge, unsightly bulge right there in the bay. Enjoy the pics.


Why politics doesn’t matter

A Letter to Boomers

Yesterday, I followed a tweet from Medium to Jonathan Taplin’s article “Why Politics Matters.” It was subtitled “Letter to Millennials 4.” If you are a “Millennial” to whom people address open letters, I feel your pain. I was constantly talked down to as a member of the “slacker” generation: Generation X. In the 1990s, Boomers loved to speculate about these mysterious citizens 18–24 years old who had weird jobs they’d never heard of and who didn’t support their old ideas about politics.
