Come On and Sarfari With Me

... Is a line from a Beach Boys song (Surfin' Safari) that was released in the Black & White Ages. If you ain't hip like me you may not know that a Surfin' Safari is about traveling to various and sundry beaches, hither and yon, for the purpose of surfing.

The ideal is one is which, "We're on safari to stay" (from Surfin' USA, Beach Boys again). I, a pasty-faced, landlocked white boy have never actually been on a surfin' safari. In fact, I have to confess I've never even been surfing surfin'.  However, I have seen all the surfin' movies of the early '60s, and I saw them in the early '60s, which must count for something (I'll never forget you, Annette).

Anyways... I am a world class web surfer and I am on safari to stay, so, I thought that a tab on my website where I post links to shtuff I've found/I find on my travels might be interesting. I primarily use Facebook to announce new columns and to pass on shtuff from the Wall Street Journal (the only possible way to share WSJ articles due to a paywall and WSJ policy). Most of my other discoveries are posted here.
