Common Sensibilities Redux

Found these quotes from the day, courtesy of The Writer's Almanac:
"We don't have to live great lives, we just have to understand and survive the ones we've got." -- Andre Dubus (short-story writer)

"Surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest on pure joy." -- Louise Bogan (poet)

Finished The Devil Wears Prada--a fun read, but such a testament to superficiality it's rather frightening.

I've got a couple more Ron Fausts to read, then I must turn my attention to our first book club book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

We're away to the Indiana State Fair this weekend. You can imagine how thrilled I was to read this article: Extra cops flood Indianapolis State Fair...guess there's been a glut of killings in Circle City.

Next week, we're off to Cedar Point.
