Newbery Rant

Personally, I laughed till I cried on this one. However, due to the nature of its language, this is not for everyone. Still . . . it's hard to resist a guy who's working title for a children's book is The Magical Train, Some Mean Step-Parents, a Bear, Something To Do With the Circus, and a Lesson About Material Possessions.

Ms. Fuse, you rock! The fact that you're a children's librarian and yet you think this rant about an award given by your peers is funny means...well...I'm not sure. But I know having you on the Newbery committee would shake things up a bit.

Peers in the loosest sense of the term. This fellow, as far as I can tell, is more in the comedic area of expertise than the librarian one. But I can't help it. It's just so durned amusing.

You know, I have relatives who believe I'm wasting the two or three hours a day I spend on the Internet. But when I think how close I came to missing reading that Newbery post...Well, it just makes me think about Fate and all.

Did you see his post about Donald Hall being named poet laureate?

I didn't until you pointed it out. Oh how fabulous. Though, I have to admit, I have a soft spot in my heart for his later post, "Animals I Have Fought With My Bare Hands In Ascending Order Of Size, Followed By The Outcome".
