The CW channel aired an episode of The Andy Griffith Show last night that I had not seen before.

I read this book as part of my on-going pursuit to fill in the yawning gaps in my classical education through sheer autodidacticism. I have to say that I found Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War riveting.

I was disappointed. The taste makers promised a fantastic story. The blurbs by well-known authors gave the book street cred. But when I mercifully came to the end of the book, I was left feeling that this story is all hat and no cattle.

This is a big book. It's not just its physical size (over 1000 pages including about 100 pages of footnotes) but its aspiration. Largely hailed as one of the keystone postmodern novels, Infinite Jest is more properly understood as an indictment of th ...more

This was an odd book for me because, while I found the story clunky and predictable, I, nevertheless, ended up considering Death Comes for the Archbishop a worthwhile read.

“We gave creation a chance.”
