This may amuse only me.

Meta James really liked singing about herself.

Almost as much as Metta World Peace likes talking about himself, but you expected that.

Blood on the Cover

It had to happen. I've been stabbed by a book.

Turns out the 22-year-old used copy of Richard Lattimore's translation of "The Odyssey" has a label on the back with a metal strip in it. Not much, maybe not enough to set off a metal detector but enough to nick me as I prepared to leave for work. So I first stopped to put a bandage on, then prepared to leave but stopped again because my copy of "The Odyssey" had blood smeared on it. Homer would approve.
