The Coyote Route:

This is another way to zip through my back pages. If you want a fast sample that jumps you in at different points (which may change from time to time), just click the Coyote!

Once you're there, you can follow a sequence by clicking the chevrons >> at the end of a post, or try clicking a tag you like at the top of a post.

That's it for now... I'll update this occasionally... Gotta run!
