Agreed about Travels in Hyperreality. The essay recounting his visit to a waxwork recreation of the Last Supper in California is hilarious.

My husband just got me this book for a gift, based on the strength of you endorsement. One chapter in and I am hooked (actually I was hooked with the PG Wodehouse quote). Thank you!

And the dust! I was driving through the farmlands of central Oregon last week and was amazed to see rising billowing curtains of topsoil rising in giant plumes from all of the dry fields. Dustbowl revisited!

I wish you had said she was listening to American Wrestlers. THAT would have been truly wonderful.

Wow thanks so much for the amazing Larkin poem, can't believe I've never seen it. Timely, too, my aging father, who seems to also have death as a blurry shape in the periphery of his vision, is just about to visit. Every line of this perfect poem gives a little bit of insight. Thanks!

And let's make sure to keep all the unvaccinated children out of, well, anywhere at all except their own homes. That's a germ scenario you can actually fret about!
