Last night on ESPN, baseball analyst John Kruk described the speedy New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes as "a guy who can literally fly." Yet the Mets still lost the pennant. Go figure. ... Last week I mentioned how disappointed I was that my fantastic new book failed to win the Nobel Prize. Well, one of my faithful readers has informed me that my book wasn't even eligible for the Nobel this year. It, will, however, be eligible next year.

The New York Times' review of the play even includes a picture of her. Very cool.
