I couldn't make the trip I wanted to this weekend, and fate showed it's sense of irony by dropping a copy of "Northwest of Normal" on my front door yesterday morning. Just finished, and really enjoyed it.

Another good read I came across last week was a story at Big Sky Journal's website by Dave Hughes called, "Widowmaker." Definitely check it out when you get a few :cool

Heard of a recently discovered palimpsest, which, if true, proves that Archimedes invented calculus centuries before Newton and Liebnitz. Had it not been lost for those many centuries, where would science and mathematics be now?

Finished "The Road" by Cormac McCarty a while back. Its a weirdly uplifting beating.
Werd.

There were a couple of chapters where I wanted to chunk that book against the wall (baby roasting on a stick), but I'm glad I stuck with it. McCarthy is the man.

Reading a book right now by Denis Leary called "Why We Suck". So far it's been hilarious, depressing and dead-on true.

The last paragraph of that book is good. Used it on some personal statements for admissions...

“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not to be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”

-Cormac McCarthy “The Road”
