I have been away from the Internet all week, following around Mrs Bonnie Anne Whiting Smith, of Indiana's Tales & Scales, as she performs contemporary classical music in elementary school assemblies (including a commisioned piece by Jerome Kitzke! with texts by Whitman & Langston Hughes!) I take the California Zephyr back to Tahoe first thing next week, at which point, loyal readers, keep an eye out for a review of Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone, & whatever else I happen to read on the train.
Also of note: Ms Grace Marlier has alerted me to a website containing historical Weight Watchers' Recipes. It is a cultural triumph; or, as the youngest Boudelaire sibling in the Lemony Snicket books points out, "Bushcheney!"
