with all the Baja and Border News Translations many of the newer blogs fly off the page so quickly they are only a blur in our peripheral sight....i missed this one and the uber talent of the writer makes that a crying shame

Oedipus wrote a first prize winning blog last August when he was just a nubie in Hillcrest http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs/ajacobs/2010/aug/31/voyage-with-mother-on-piggyback/

Rickeysays commented Oedipus, you whip the language like a jockey whips a horse.

Rickey is right!!

well he's done it again and MORE then deserves a REDO on the blog page

u may not have the taste for the subject....but if u r hungry for some fantabulous writer's exciting words... go give this youngster a read

OMG!! I did not think anything would get me back to posting on The Reader, but this was one of the BEST things I have read in a really long time. I did not want it to end. This should be in The New Yorker.

this guy is just so talented Grantie...he's just got to find an avenue for his talent!!!

New Yorker material for sure
