    I read The Red Pony at the suggestion of a teacher when I was in 4th Grade.

    4th Grade.

    That was so wrong.

    Yes, I was reading at the high school level. No, that did not mean I would appreciate that horrible, horrific story.

    It was 20 years before I finally decided to give Steinbeck a second try.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

      There is no question that there is an unseen world. The problem is, how far is it from Midtown and how late is it open? -- Woody Allen
