No Guinness for you
Due to the, um, modest response (TLB's and Brando's enthusiasm notwithstanding, but I doubt they could down four gallons each), the First Annual Earth Goat Sheriff's Birthday and Guinness Keg Festival has been postponed. Spring Break has indeed broken in Iowa City. The banks took down their marquees and put up sundials. I took a long nap in the middle of Burlington Street and woke up to a Mennonite buggy waiting for me to move along. The only obstacles to parking wherever you like are the tumbleweeds. I've seen bigger crowds in a port-o-potty. This place is slower than a sloth doing tai-chi -- it's emptier than an Iranian McDonald's, folks.
