THE HAMPTONS OF THE MIDWEST
I'm here with Dorian Black in Harbor Country where it's an hour ahead of Chicago, which means that 6AM tomorrow will feel like 4AM, what with daylight savings time and all. They have WiFi that refuses to upload images at our cute little inn -- which is directly across the street from Lake Michigan -- where a laminated sign warns that there's no loud music and no drinking after 11PM. Nonetheless the all-volunteer community radio station comes in just fine (their 100-watt signal carries pretty far, and so far they sound far better than most college stations). Tomorrow: checking out the station and the many bike trails in the area.
