Some people go to Aruba while others have Aruba thrust upon them. Whatever that means. Saturday morning I am off to Aruba for a two week taxpayer funded all-expenses paid tour of One Happy Island. Check out the scratch marks on the airport tarmac made by my fingernails as they dragged me back onto the airplane last year. This time I will investigate the sturdiness of beach chairs. I am bringing some books with me, one on QM, two on QFT, and a novel "Dune Messiah". I hope to meet you there. If not, please keep the snow off the sidewalks for me while I'm gone.
