So what else is going on today? I’m off to Portsmouth for an opera … sounds like it’ll be a LONG one (>3 hours with two intermissions). Wonder if bringing a laptop would be frowned on … hmmmm.
After that Bookeaters have a “meeting” to discuss our latest book (which I have not finished and will need to make a confession about). The book? The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. (Who knew that Junot Diaz was an MIT prof? Practically a neighbor. I could have asked him about all the stuff I didn’t understand!) Anyway – it’s a wonderful book … I’m just excruciatingly slow at getting through things these days. Oh yeah – we’re “meeting” at the Green Monkey … a great spot!
Finally, the sad news about Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s cancer brings to the fore the judicial choices that will be confronting President Obama. My modest proposal? What about appointing Anita Hill? She has kept her hand in the business and seems quite well respected. She’s a professor of social policy, law and women’s studies at Brandeis University, and was, in 2007, a visiting scholar at the Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College. I think she’s make a nice counter-balance to Scalia and Thomas – and it would be nice to see Clarence Thomas squirm just a bit. Wouldn’t it?
Let’s buy the man a coke and watch the fun. Come on, Barack – the guy deserves to be very, very, very uncomfortable.
