Blue Angel Motel update

An update on possible changes at the Blue Angel Motel and surrounding area, with quotes from your favorite former Blue Angel tenant. I was worried that I came across as insensitive when quoted as saying, “There is clearly a market for that kind of clientele.” (Of course, if that’s how I worded it, I simply meant Hispanics.) Then I read the comments at the bottom of the story and was, once again, appalled by how ignorant and insensitive some folks can be.

Book launch follow-up

All-around solid event: well-attended, smoothly moderated and some great readings. Thanks to everyone who was there (and apparently missed one of the most exciting World Series games ever).
