Getting away from the Current  SEP 16 2001

Getting away from the Current Situation and just trying to return to some sort of normalcy is difficult these days. Flight cancellations, plans postponed, television still dominated by the news coverage, events cancelled, newspapers and Web sites (including this one) still full of news/commentary, &c. Yesterday, in an attempt to escape from all that, I went to 2001 Extreme: An Arcade Odyssey. $25 for all the vintage arcade and pinball games I could play. Dig Dug, Burgertime, Defender, Asteroids, Star Wars, Donkey Kong, they were all there. They even had a Bubble Bobble machine, one of my all-time favorites. Good, clean, dorky fun.
