Literary Jane

Writer Jane Smiley said almost all I wanted to say about Obama's pick of Rick Warren to provide the invocation at the Inauguration. Read here.

Jane said almost all. I'd like to add: Prop 8 really showed me that I should fight like heck. Because lawd knows Warren (and his ilk) will fight like heck against me. At the end of the day, however, I'll go ahead and offer water and cookies to anyone who wants to disagree with me. Really.

Literary Play

I had to look twice when I saw the headline: P.U.-Litzer Prize. This play on the Pulitzer Prize is designated for "stinky media coverage." Read here. I thought it was hilarious.

Literary Burial

You know what lifted my spirits? (And thanks to all of you for your kind comments on my last post. We can all wallow together.) Jeff Walsh sent me this website--and I love it! There's nothing like a writer turning lemons into lemonade.

It's a website about an author burying her book. It's hilarious. Check it out here.
