Before August wraps up, I guess I should note the thirteenth anniversary of my arrival on the east coast of the United States.

In August 1993, I packed up most of my worldly possessions into my red 1989 Dodge Raider and a U-Haul trailer and headed east to Connecticut – via Minnesota, where my friend Dan went to college.

Why am I reminded of this just now? Well, tonight is the thirteenth anniversary of The Late Show with David Letterman. And I remember watching the Dave’s first show on CBS from the living room of the house I shared in Rocky Hill, Connecticut.

And what an experience it’s been since!
