Boanerges commented on Doc Vega's blog post David Paulides and More 411 Disappearances
"Interesting. Bill Bryson ("A Walk in the Woods") alludes briefly to disappearances on the Appalachian Trail, which is maintained in many areas by volunteers. That aside, has this issue/author ever appeared on "CoasttoCoastAM"?…"

"What a dork. Know what's awful (at least for me)? He and I are roughly -- and I wish it could be rougher, the coward -- the same age. Theoretically, it supposed to mean that he and I share many of the same viewpoints. Well, we don't. And I…"

"@Kosh: I think he died, old friend. He'd been in ill-health for quite some time -- especially respiratory issues. It's why he moved to British Columbia, or so he intimated. I never received replies to my last emails to him (we'd…"

I recently finished Robert Sawyer’s trilogy The Neanderthal Parallax, and it left me thinking. (For those who don’t know me, that’s seldom a good idea.)
