I'm thinking about the upcoming Vegas junket, and realized that as totally as I knew the valley during the heyday of our excursions and my writings, I might've slipped even farther the other direction, into the Valley of the Woefully Unknowing. Wow. Times change, interests change, opportunities change. Wow. I mean, the systemic architecture really hasn't been tweaked. But the minutiae just ain't there. Time to learn all over again, for the first time!
