Odds and Ends
I'm busy working on a thing for a guy, so I'm going to fall behind the reading schedule for a few days. Will get caught up over the Thanksgiving break.
In the meantime, here's a fascinating article about why Heller's original title for the novel, Catch-18, was changed. A warning for those participating in NaNoReMo--it looks like there might be some spoilers in there. I don't know for certain, because, at the first hint of them, I skipped ahead to the origins of The Postman Always Rings Twice and My Man Jeeves. Thanks to Zan and David for passing the article along.
Also, you may recall that I recently urged Democrats to please oh please not vote for Clinton. Now Eric Berlin explains why Republicans should steer clear of Gulliani. Seriously, Dems and Repubs should just make an agreement in advance: we won't nominate our New Yorker if you won't nominate yours. I don't know how, in a time when the United States desperately needs unity, we wound up with the nation's two most polarizing figures as front runners in a Presidential election.Posted on November 19, 2007 to Misc
