The Campaign

What campaign are we talking about?  Now there’s a good question.  Oh, just trying to get BACK OF THE HOUSE into the hands of media based in Gotham.  Inch by inch, step by step, yes, that’s right, I feel a little like Moe although it’s clear I’d be Larry in the remake.

Anyhow, all jokes aside–was that a joke?–I’m immersed in Tanizaki’s, “In Praise of Shadows,” while eagerly anticipating tonight’s herring in cream sauce from Russ & Daughters followed by pan seared American waygu from DeBragga.  And on top of everything: It’s NCAA basketball with Michigan tonight!

Does it get any better?

It does get worse.  Let me count the ways.   Actually, it was mostly one way: This morning, interviewing the very, very, very down and out, including one man who was so out of control that the armed security guard Xaviar offered to sit in, I met a person who spent the past thirteen years incarcerated in state for rape.

That took the air out of my lungs.

Puts everything in perspective.
