Pot and Kettle

As longtime residents of Isla Vista, John Perlin and I often crossed paths. John, being somewhat of a genius, was also somewhat of a character (now there’s the pot calling the kettle black). In any case, I often held him at arm’s length. But on those occasions I let my guard down, I always learned something most interesting. It’s nice to see some acknowledgement of another one of the area’s hidden gems. Good job, Nick.
