My coffeehouse odyssey is not meant to be a series of reviews, so it’s time for me to blog in the uncharacteristic (for me) style of random musings.

The growing profusion of SUVs makes it harder to find your car in a parking lot, doesn’t it? It’s hard to see over those things, and if you forgot what row you parked in, forget trying to see over into the next row.

Eugene Ionesco’s classic play “Rhinoceros” is commonly believed to be a fable about the rise of Naziism or fascism. I think it’s a fable for our time, anticipating the rise of the SUV – a real rhinoceros of an automobile.
