Pal o' tha Jalop and Pulitzer thief Dan Neil is at Monterey with Joni Gray and blogging the whole big shebang. We've got a Johnson, a Bumbeck and a Kia and the rumble is on, in our own private Hooverville, children. Seriously, though, we loved Dan's Le Mans blog, and we're sure the LAT's coverage from Steinbeck country will be a wonderful kind of askew. Meanwhile, Joni's compiled great a list of things to do in Monterey when you're dead. Or rich. Or broke. We're serious. Cal Trask is up in your steez, stealing your strawberries. Get out here while the Salinas Valley still stands. [LA Times]
