The Corner


I’m at the Don Beyer Volvo service center in Virginia. I’m the only guy under 40 in the waiting room and I’m definitely the only one wearing a “The Pipeline Inn” T-Shirt. No, it’s not a gay bar memento. It’s from the bar in Valdez, Alaska where the captain of the Exxon Valdez went before, um, mistakes were made. I don’t know why, but I particularly enjoy wearing it at a Volvo dealership — and at crunchy locales everywhere. Their WiFi, by the way, is inconveniently spotty. Still, it’s nice to have.
