Early conference commitments interrupt an uncomfortable slumber before the sun has scaled the Utahan Rockies. Beside the bed, The Cartoon Guide to Statistics is sprawled upside down with its makeshift bookmark bent out of shape. I cannot recall what I read last. The calves ache from dehydration. A tired start to a long day. (6:21 am, Tuesday, March 27, 2007.)
PS: Later, it snowed for more than a day, and Polaris recovered his spirits after a breathless walk to a ski slope. 2 days later, he was happy to breathe the California air again.
