When Derek asked me to post for BBL&L, we had a brief exchange about content.  As a former print journalist, I was used to having my pieces posted in the online versions of the papers I worked for, but blogging was never a part of my job.

I still don’t read many blogs except this one.  It’s a time-management issue.  There are only so many hours in the day for reading, and on a beautiful fall day I’d rather be on the porch with, say, Saul Bellow.

I just picked up a copy of The Dean’s December for a quarter at the library book store.  It’s a Pocket paperback, published in 1983.
