- Hello all. Things in U.S. a bit crazy as can be imagined. All is OK
in Chicago, but no airports opened and all people on heightened
alert, wondering whether or not more stuff will happen. Federal
government says "minimal" chance of that. No one I know has been
affected in New York, Wasingotn DC, or Pennsylvania. More or less
safe. Let's keep the reading and discussion going, so we can take
this shit off our minds. Am reading "Tidewater Tales" to pass the
time in addition to LETTERs and seeing how Barth had incorporated all
of the elements of history, word games, current events and mythology
that he had immersing himself in from Letters, Chimera, and
Sabbatical and gave them a new twist. Would recommend Tideater as our
next book to read, since Kris I know has not read it yet!
Fighting the good fight, Agrimorfee.

Though my other reading list is a rather extensive right now.
- Sorry, but it's going to take me a couple days to again feel the
significance of things that are normally of supreme importance to me:
reading and thinking about what I've read. No one I know was directly
affected in the attack the day before yesterday, but all the same I'm
knocked down by this. America (and, presumably, American fiction) will
never be the same.
My thoughts are with all those who were directly affected by the attack
(if anyone on this list was). I wish you peace and strength.
