A Small Victory

Turns out John Rawls is no John Grisham. Sorry, folks, this is gonna take a while.
Meantime, why not check out James Lileks' weekdaily Bleat? Not everyone gets him - he's probably best known as the curator of the Gallery of Regrettable Food - but he writes about his average existence in suburban Minneapolis, with wife, small daughter Gnat, and dog Jasper, with irony both gentle and sharp at the same time. I thought about calling him Minnesota's Garrison Keillor, but that's not quite fair. In my imagination, Keillor still holds the small towns and countryside of Minnesota for his own. But he always left the cities for other hands to draw, and so far, for me, those have only been Lileks' and the Coens'. And there's much more of Lileks. The archives go back years. I figure that'll hold you for a while.
