I’m in the middle of a great book by Brendan Ballou titled Plunder. It’s about private equity in America and there’s some great facts about the negative impact of private equity on retail businesses, specifically using it as nothing but a real estate bank. If these guys take control of Macy’s, you can probably kiss it goodbye within 10 years.

I’ve thought about a trip on Sunset Limited. Long month in a sleeper around the country in a roomette. Probably DC --> NOLA --> LA --> ?? --> CHI --> NYP --> DC.
