It’s been a little while since I became absorbed in a book. I really didn’t feel like blogging today.
It is indeed an good feeling to be pulled between the covers into the world of a well-crafted tale full of fantasy and adventure off in the wide, unfamiliar world… and then the phone rings… and I must leave the scary world where I’m gasping to know what happens next. I take the call and answer the questions, fix the problems, and then I’m back between the covers again.
In the meantime, before I slipped between the covers initially, I’ve found a few articles interesting today.

- The Epic Narcissism Of Cindy Sheehan – Even the American left’s netroots are getting tired of Cindy Sheehan. It’s a shame it took them so long. Bereavement is no guarantee of wisdom.
