Theoretician, comedy writer, sailboat racer, ...

Since Bill brought up Jeff Westbrook (yes, people, I have co-written a paper with a Simpsons screenwriter, thank you very much), I thought that I should mention that he's now, along with everything else, a sailboat racer !

He's racing in a race called Transpac, from Long Beach, CA to Honolulu, HI. His boat is called the Peregrine, and it has a 4-man crew. You can track their position (they were leading when I last checked) at http://www.transpacificyc.org/ (go to "track charts," then click the center logo. when the page loads, hit boat selector, pick division 6, then hit boat selector again, then wait). You can also visit the boat blog (bblog?) at http://peregrine-transpac.blogspot.com/.

One should note that Jeff, being the considerate soul that he is, signed off on revisions to pending papers before he left.

  1. Adam,

    Are you a comedy writer? If so, what are your rates? I'm a comedy ventriloquist (based out of Seattle area) and am interested in finding a comedy writer. I understand that you probably have a specific strength regarding comedy writing, so I'd also like to learn if there is a style of comedy that you're particularly talented at.

    My website is
    FunnyDummy.com and all of my contact information is online (preferable method of contact is e-mail).

    Thanks in advance!

    Justin (aka Sure Fire)
