In Case You Were Wondering

I’m on vacation! You’ll have to spend a few more days with Newyorkette (Carolita Johnson, New Yorker cartoonist and pal), Blog About Town (everything you need to look at and remember, all in one place), I Hate The New Yorker (rumored to be moving closer to the apple that sleeps between about 2:30 and 5 a.m.—ZP, care to comment?), Silence of the City (rejected, terrific Talks of the Town), and New Yorker Comment (a young journalist to watch, there). Also, this is something you should know: The majestic New Yorker historian Ben Yagoda has a new book out. It’s When You Catch an Adjective, Kill It: The Parts of Speech, for Better And/Or Worse, and it’s got a killer cover design (who’s the designer? I’d like to know, please). That’s what I know about it so far, but we’re talking about the guy who wrote The Sound on the Page here. I’ll report again when I’ve read it. You’ll know the moment I have by the dramatic improvement in my points, coms, semis, parens, dols, quos, hyphs, quirks, and slams.
