Over the next few months, and probably longer, I'm going to load a series of the chapters that didn't make it into the book, in much-truncated form, and segments of other chapters that better fit as standalones than as part of the "outtakes" from the chapters for which they were originally intended:  a piece on Mad Max:  Beyond Thunderdome; one on Jackson Browne's Before the Deluge; a longer discussion of Joni Mitchell; a piece on the bifurcation of Disneyland and Epcot Center; a piece on Yellowstone and Jellystone and the rise of summer vacation nature tourism in the '50s and '60s; and more, as I comb the files.
