So we seemed to lose the propellers on the way to Portland, but made it anyway. (My friend Rob at Microsoft explained what's actually happening here: "This might actually be an artifact of the order in which the camera was reading frame data from the CCD -- sweeping across laterally while the pixels themselves were strobing from the propeller's shadow.")Thank you James and Diane for setting up a great event at Powell's on Hawthorne. Another engaged, smart, beautiful audience. Including Lisa and Rachel here--These are homemade The Savage Girl T-shirts that they're wearing! Replete with lines and "sloganitions" from the novel on both front and back. I'm so touched by this, words fail me. What an honor to have such cool and creative readers.
