Thanks so much Todd - always amazing to be pointed to so much goodness out there - fabulous stuff!

Thanks, Sergio, and for your consistent contribution. When life isn't too uncooperative, it's mostly a pleasure to assemble. And there is indeed so much interesting writing about various odd corners of the arts...

In case you're still compiling the links for Friday's Forgotten Books for Feb 26 and didn't get mine here it is. I just posted it:

She Who Was No More by Boileau & Narcejac

Thanks for doing the dirty work this week, Todd.

Clean work when I can get it! Dirty work was in the several hours today straigntening out the mess that my "providers" had made of my RomneyCare application. And being reclassified on the fly, and paying an exorbitant COBRA payment for another month at least. Yes, single-payer is So Very Wrong, what we're doing to reward the noble insurance industry so much more appropriate.Thanks.
