Baseball season 

Ben doesn't have quite so many this year (16 teams in the league), but every Tuesday and Thursday for the next couple of months we'll be out watching 2+ hour games. So far they (the "Rangers") have 1 win, 1 loss... A lot of his buddies are in the various other teams this year (neighbors on the street, friends from 3rd grade); the guy he sits next to in class made a third out off Ben's grounder one inning last game, and looked very pleased about it! His little brother, who used to play with Elizabeth's Pirates, is also on the same team.

After a quick trip to DC last week to meet with other publishers and also a brief chat with George Whitesides, I came back with the second installment of Neal Stephenson's "Baroque Cycle", The Confusion. Not quite as long as the first, but a similar mix of piracy, politics, and philosophy... And lots more Leibniz! Now I'm hoping to write a review before Mum gets here to read it
