I’ve driven to the Surrey Writers’ Conference before, but I’ve never seen so many people pulled over by the highway patrol. No less than three vehicles were stopped, I assume for speeding. This included one middle-aged jerk—balding, driving a red convertible—who tailgated a number of us on the freeway until we switched to a slower lane to let him pass. Compensating for much? I saw a motorcycle cop pull him over.

So I arrived early for the conference and took in a movie. I don’t have time to review Argo, so I’ll just say that Ben Affleck has somehow become a master director.
