This Starbucks in Zurich is full of babies and mothers. It is a civilized country where you can have your double tall latte "in" in a real cup. It is crammed full of sofas with computers and students all around.

Reading Heute I am reminded that there was a time in my life when I enthusiastically watched boxing. Yesterday, January 17, was Mohammed Ali's 65th birthday. The article fails to mention that he invented an artform: rap. Oh how I loved him! He was something we had never seen before--a beautiful, brilliant, powerful, arrogant black man. He loomed over boxing and indeed our whole world like a collossus.

The govenator is on the cover of Heute holding an orange. It's much warmer here than the California I left yesterday.
