A La Carte (7/19)

Thursday July 19, 2007

Books: The NY Times has an early review of the new Harry Potter. “With each installment, the Potter series has grown increasingly dark, and this volume … is no exception.” “Ms. Rowling has fitted together the jigsaw puzzle pieces of this long undertaking with Dickensian ingenuity and ardor.”

Politics: Obama says “sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is ‘age-appropriate,’ is ‘the right thing to do.’”

Humor: Pecadillo shares a strange story and shows that he shares my dislike for cats, evil creatures that they are.

Du Jour: Timmy Brister writes about being “a Misfit in a World of Impermanence.” Well worth the read, this one.
