I read a great article recently, really recently, yesterday I think, about how difficult it is to be a professional writer these days. Maybe you saw it.… and can tell me where it is. The New York Times?, New Yorker? Ah, the perils of vacation. I’ve been grabbing up beautifully prepared words like some ancient Roman glutton at a Las Vegas buffet, a subject the aforementioned article also discussed — how easy it is to read great writing these days, that is; it was silent on the topic of time-traveling gluttons.
