Read-a-thon Update the Third


The Amazon package thrown on the porch this morning contained John Dufresne's latest, which I'm happily reading now.

Curiously though, a minor character (at least at this point), a wheelchair-ridden jerk who aspires to be a nightclub comic, quotes Ann Coulter's "corn-fed, no-makeup, natural-fiber, no-bra-needing, sandal-wearing, hirsute, somewhat fragrant hippie chick pie wagon" line about the women at the 2004 Democratic convention without providing attribution. Is this something a non-political junkie is likely to know?

I'm glad to see the cat barf didn't throw you out of your groove.

I'm not an official cheerleader, but I thought I'd give you a, "Go, Susan, Go!"
