This morning I had my first fit of temper since my foot swelled. I was tired of lurching around the house from furniture to furniture, making sure there was a cane handy, not being able to do anything or go anywhere. On the other hand, I was afraid of pushing my luck. So I had a pity party. After... Read more of this blog post »

Carnival hucksters aren’t stupid. They’ve got street smarts and years of experience hoodwinking ‘rubes’ into believing they can win something for nothing. And the games they entice you to play always give them the advantage.

What I'm Reading July 2015


I admit to feelings of confusion, bewilderment and frustration upon finishing Haruki Murakami’s The Strange Library. I shut the book and thought to myself, “What the hell was that?” Not an altogether unusual reaction to reading his fiction, or so I hear from people who dislike his novels. But th...

Someone said—I don't remember whom—that we cannot define a novel, a chapter, or even a paragraph, but a sentence—we know what that is. I find that to be right and true as any definition of a literary object larger than a sentence can be refuted using counter-examples. The variety is so vast that... Read more of this blog post »
