Heralding the triumphant return of science to Kansas?
It's from the New York Times, so you might need login or Bug Me Not.
Anyhoo, there's not much in the way of news. I'm probably going back to school in the fall. I'm currently crashing at a friends apartment in her spare room. (Crashing meaning here, in my third month there.) It doesn't have internet or tv, so I'm getting a lot of reading done in my spare time, and more importantly getting out a lot more. Speaking of which, for those that care, it looks like I will definitely be going back to Detroit from Saturday to Tuesday, with the express purpose of completing some forms, voting on Tuesday, and generally hanging out. There's a barbeque on Saturday I'd like to go to, but other than that, I'm pretty open. I'd really like to go to Greenfield Village to see the old time baseball be played, either Saturday or Sunday, so if anyone's interested in that, let me know.
One of my new years resolutions was to keep track of all of the books I read this year. Not only am I impressed by the quantity (I'm at around book 40 by now), it's forced me to be more diligent at finishing the books I start, and choosing better books to read. I've recently had a string of some of the best fiction I've read in a long time, discovering in succession Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, A Long Way Down, and How to be Good [Also About a Boy but I haven't read that].), Tom Robbins (Jitterbug Perfume and Still Life With Woodpecker) and P.G. Wodehouse (Leave It To Psmith, Something Fresh, Carry on, Jeeves and No Nudes is Good Nudes.
It's been a good summer. Maybe next time I come to the Library, I'll remember to write about my Great Western Adventure, but I don't have the time right now.
