  1. I’m actually excited about the Simpsons movie for the perverse reason that the makers of the show have hinted in the DVD commentaries that it would probably kill the show. No specific details, but there’s a definite vibe that the movie will be a sort of grand finale.

    Of course, I also totally bought into the idea that REM would break up at midnight on New Year’s Day, 2000, so…

  2. Yes, to put a plainer spin on it, the fact that Foer couldn’t incorporate the Rumsfeld developments into his story is a problem with the way the story was ASSIGNED, not the way it was written. Considered in and of itself, it’s a perfectly competent review of State of Denial, just as good as any of the ones filed a month before it.

  3. Ed, what’s your beef with the Stephen King review? I thought it was refreshingly energetic and broad in scope.

  4. Updike can take Toprol XL like everyone else!

    Thanks for the good wishes on NaNoWriMo. I’ll need all the luck I can get!
