what did you think?
The Senate, in general, by George Packer. Funny, sad and easy to read. (avail)
David Sedaris on airline travel, and hate. Hits a nerve. (subscription only)
Hospice by Atul Gawande. The title for this in the paper TOC was so dull - "rethinking" something or other . . . But the article was amazing and I was reduced to tears on a bright summer's day. Lagusta warned me! (avail)
John Lurie. Tad Friend really captures the weirdness. (subscription only)
Nicholson Baker on video gaming. Oh My God. He was born to write this. (subscription only) I'll probably even listen to the podcast, eventually.
Also, Gil Scott-Heron and Agatha Christie.
