From NYPost letters page yesterday:
Now that she’s withdrawn her nomination, let’s make a real judge our next nominee Robert Bork.

It’s been a year since the second (and, it seems, last) book in the landmark Book of Ages series hit the shelves in the States. But this fall, Japan is getting its first taste courtesy of the translated version of The Big 40. As a public service, JVG helpfully runs down the differences between the editions. Bonzai!

Finally got unlazy last weekend and uploaded a bunch of photos to Flickr. Sights from Maine, Budapest, European Travels. the Hamptons, various weddings, and the Eater launch party.

Mourning the end of Tale of Two Cities just like Joey would have wanted it: 509 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded
With the weather, and the way things ended for the Sox this year, it seems even more appropriate than usual this time of year:
“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.” A. Bartlett Giamatti, The Green Fields of the Mind
Except for those yearsso rare, so preciousit doesn’t. There was loss this year, but no pain. And I can sit here and watch the first pitch of Game 5 of Angels-Yanks without a sharp knife to the stomach even when Schwartz emails, “I think AROD is going to have 6 RBIs tonight.” You know, he probably is.
Gone zen here at LS.com for a moment to clear out the old. New goodies coming soon.
