Nick Jaina: That's When You Fall (Phoenix, AZ)

Quantum mechanics allows for the possibility of parallel universes. The idea is that when you're about to make a decision in your life, the whole universe splits into two. In one universe you, for example, order the clam chowder. In the other, you order a corned beef sandwich. You can never backtrack, thou...   More

Nick Jaina: The Lakes of Pontchartrain (New Orleans, LA)

New Orleans has no narrative coherence. You can't tell a story about New Orleans by starting at the beginning and proceeding to the end. It just won't make any sense. Cause and effect are reversed.

Nick Jaina: We are no longer children (Sacramento, CA)

The best introduction to California is to come at it from Oregon. If you enter from Arizona or Nevada, you're just going from bleak desert to more bleak desert, and you can't understand immediately what makes California such a dream to so many sappy, sentimental people like myself. If you drive down I-5 from...   More
