In the news today

Feel sufficiently bad about what’s on the front page of the paper today, to add something myself. I am not all that knowledgeable on the finer points of the situation in the Middle East, but I’m so old that I’ve seen news like this more times than I should have.

In the spring I blogged briefly about  Message in a Bottle by Valérie Zenatti, feeling it was a book everybody should read. If you didn’t, now is a good time to do so. And maybe give it as a gift, if you’re buying gifts or books for someone you like.

  1. I’m currently reading Joe Sacco’s graphic novel Palestine, which is very sad and very good, and literally puts pictures to the dire situation out there. Highly recommended.
