Yesterday was the 79th anniversary of the opening of the first drive-in theater, in 1933, which Google commemorated on its main page with one of its Google doodles (in the shape of a ticket, notice). Also to mark the occasion, Chicago's WGN Radio 720 conducted an interview with our friend Carl ("Odysseus") Weese from the road somewhere in the southern Great Plains. The interview's fun: the interviewer is intelligent, Carl articulate; both did a good job, methought.
Odysseus—er, Carl—had a hard couple of days: there's an oil boom in the panhandles, and the opportunistic labor force is sucking up all the available housing, including motel rooms, shutting him out. He had to drive hundreds of miles just to find a place to lay his head.
