No time to write a longer post..
Critic John Leonard has died, at 69. Damn.
I lost touch with his work over the last few years, but I've been a fan. He had a distinctive point of view, a vast store of knowledge, an unusual way with words and a wonderful cadence to his reviews on CBS Sunday Morning.
Here's an attempt I made once at conveying his spoken rhythms in text.
I recently bought an iPod Touch, because I was itching to get an iPhone.
The Touch costs $229, once, versus a couple of thousand dollars for an iPhone over the two years of your contract.
I'm very very happy with it, for reading feeds, following Twitter, following baseball, and much more; if you spend much of your day with access to wifi, it's frankly just as good as an iPhone.
With this, my 6th post in 6 days, I will note that I'm trying for NaBloPoMo - a post every day for the entire month. (I wasn't going to bother mentioning it until I could demonstrate some actual activity.)
Wish me luck.2 comment(s)
