commented on The Little Novel That Stephen Colbert Made Into a Big Deal
I agree with @ 1, it was a quick & easy read, but clearly a first novel with two-dimensional characters and no one in that landscape of liars and secret-keepers to relate to, absolutely no one, it seemed, who was asking the obvious questions like, "Isn't this apocalypse an opportunity to make the world better instead of worse?"
commented on Suburbs Are Not Cities
My suburb is eminently walkable and bikeable, with shops, restaurants, groceries, pubs, churches, fitness clubs, a golf course, and many other destinations & amenities all around. Of course, I live in a small city and downtown is a 20-minute bike ride away.
