I’m off to NELA this weekend in Burlington, VT, but I wanted to share this in the meantime. The quote below came from the book I’m currently reading, It Happened In Boston?, by Russell H. Greenan. I thought it apt, considering some of the recent posts here.
...This morning, in the library peristyle, I contemplated athanasia. It was very pleasant, very pleasant indeed. That is, it was until this ancient old woman sat next to me and began to cough in my ear. I believe that I would have beaten her if I had had a stick with me, preferably one with a nail in it. But I am only joking.
One isn’t safe from fools even in a library.
And this is a patron talking.
