John Hodgman visited Brookline tonight and explained to the residents of
the Boston area how Hoboes are close to taking over the world. Though
most of them escaped to outer space after the great depression.
At least he had Jonathon Coulton along to sign accompanient and play his
theme song, because every self respecting author should have a theme
John tought how to draw and recognize a hobo sign.
After standing in line for a hour or so I was able to meet the man who
is a very sincere and downright funny man.
Of course I was able to get a copy of The Areas of My
Expertise. I was fortuitous enough
to have a copy ready for pneumatic
transport as John pointed
out when I mentioned the brilliancy of pneu-mail.
