I'll take 'em!
Seriously... I hope you can get some relief - at least from RA. It's just setting in on me now, and is no fun! Seems to reduce if I exercise so much that I can't tell it from "normal" over-exercising pain. Other than that, it's just a bear. And over-exercising hurts more than the RA itself at this point.
> Thank you Wiploc! I have actually done some of that work myself, and it has given me a deep appreciation for good reading!
A good reader is one whom I rarely want to correct. A great reader makes me realize I would have missed out if I'd been reading the book myself.
Tull is a great reader, as are, curiously, those various people who read Donald E Westlake's books. Start--if you're interested--with The Hot Rock and then Bank Shot, and after that I don't think order matters.
The Hot Rock was supposed to be a Parker book, a hard boiled crime story, but it kept turning funny, so Westlake had to invent a new cast to accommodate the humor.
Don't watch any movies made from Westlake's movies. The Hot Rock, despite Redford and Segal, was indifferent. The rest are far worse. Not Westlake's fault.
Re your comment about current headlines: schwiiiiiing!
I keep thinking about Colbert when he heard that Hannity was named in court as one of Cohen's clients. If you didn't see it, they switched to an image of Hannity or something, and then when the camera turned back to Stephen, he was laying back in an armchair with a glass of wine and playing with his nipples.
I meant it, Gaynor.
I dropped out of high school.
It took 40+ years for any regrets to set in about it, but it is clear in retrospect that the last truly excellent teacher I had was in the 6th grade and I'd have stuck it out if there had been any of that caliber in high school.
