Hip-hip-hooray for Marquez!

And speaking of writers we both like, have you read the Chabon essay in the New Yorker about super-hero costumes? It's fantastic and I think you can find it at the New Yorker website.

I still, sadly, have not read Yiddish Policeman's Union, and I have no good excuse for it. I actually have a Borders gift card in my wallet right now, I might have to use it on that.

How's the DJ racket, by the by?
