From Jeana's journal: For anyone in the Berkeley area, today…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

From Jeana's journal:

For anyone in the Berkeley area, today (being Friday) at 4 pm, Ursula K. Le Guin will be speaking in the Morrison Room of Doe Library. The "K" in her name stands for Kroeber, 'cause her dad was Alfred Kroeber, an influential anthropologist earlier this century who has a building on campus named after him.
Of course. Alfred Kroeber. I don't know why I thought his name was Herbert. Maybe it was the Alfred Kroeber --> Ursula K. Le Guin --> another science fiction writer, Frank Herbert connection.
