Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Apparently the man who was shot to death at the Miami airport by air marshalls lived right across the street from where I grew up, in Maitland, Florida. Lou Gunther, the neighbor mentioned in this Orlando Sentinel story, was our next-door neighbor. From the story, it sounds as if the guy was perfectly normal and for some reason wasn’t able to take his meds that day. What a horrible chain of events. Sure makes me think twice about trying to travel anywhere within the US by plane in this post-9/11 environment.

I am traveling this weekend, but not by plane. The Muddy Basin Ramblers are taking a bus, along with a couple of other bands, down to this place in Meinong for a Hakka festival of some sort. We’ll be playing a concert on Saturday and holding a workshop on Sunday, and then coming back that night. It should be interesting; I need a break, and hopefully the weather down there will be a bit more cheery than we’ve had up here in Taipei for the past week.
