Your weekly potpourri -- we parse the news so you don't have to. You are welcome.
1. Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. Soundtrack is definitely worth a listen. What happens after its Midwest run is over? We were wondering. Also, here's a review from the Nashville performance; I'd have to agree. This Indianapolis reviewer was pretty critical.
2. This is like a heat map of my reading life. No passport necessary.
3. I had a no good, terrible, very bad day last week. But I was not the first one.
4. I thought Indiana's would be 'Girl of the Limberlost' and Ohio's 'Winesburg, Ohio,' which shows what I know. (Just FYI, both those books are FREE for your Kindle.) Click through to discover the most famous books in each state.
I'm going to take a cold shower.
