Light blogging lately, as we prepare for a 10-day trip to the East Coast ... literally. We'll spend much of the time at the North Carolina beaches, where we probably won't have Internet access.
So I'll plug a column by me that will appear in Sunday's Review-Journal on the connections between Las Vegas and the theme of my friend Virginia Postrel's wonderful new book The Substance of Style. The Web link to the column will go up after we depart, so to find it, go to the Review-Journal's Web site Sunday, click on Opinion, and look for either my byline or the title of the piece ("Look and feel and Las Vegas"). And by all means, buy this book.
