My colleague John Hanchette and I have decided to write a book. So far, all we have is a title, but we think it's a winner:

"Festival Seating in Hell."

I'm thinking the hell from James Joyce's "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man."

I find I can't read challenging stuff in very large doses.

Which reminds me: I've got a boatload of Chaucer to read for next week. Yikes!

Agreed. I don't mind James Joyce in general, but can't stand the Portrait.

We're working on arrangements to have our party at the same place and time as the release party for Conrad Black.
