(Insert Dashing Han Solo Quote Here)

written July 24-27, 2011   I assure you I do not have a DeLorean stashed away (although I actually see one around town on occasion, but traveling at an acceptable speed).  If I did possess such stainless-steel wheels I would have a short list of who in history I would want to meet first.  Perhaps…
