ex machina

the serious side of 'car talk'

a friend recently told me that the reason why cartalk has had more than their fair share of reruns of late is because half of the radio duo, tom magliozzi, had a serious heart condition emerge over the summer, and although he was getting better slowly that he was "close to death at the time". i figured that surely this must surely be a public radio urban legend, since the news would be known far and wide with adoring masses showing their support. not so, the friend told me, since npr and cartalk wanted to keep things on the hush hush.

as it turns out, i don't know how close to death he was, but tom did get sick over the summer and if google is any indication, things were kept mighty quiet .

in any case, hopefully tom is recovering nicely, because i'm not sure i'm prepared for a life without cartalk .

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
