I've been in the nation's capital the past few days, visiting my folks. The weather here is cool and sunny despite the heat being generated by the Gommery inquiry. Saw the trailer for the new Star Wars film yesterday and got excited about it for the first time. Sure, Lucasfilm has become a major marketing franchise--like Disney with lightsabers--but the birth of Darth Vadar is a tale too tantalizing to miss. I won't be lining up weeks before the opening just to get a ticket for the first screening, but you can bet I'll be there a day or two later, with or without my Yoda ears.
