"Too much traffic"
I've never wanted to read Gore Vidal until now. Put Ms. Solomon right in her place.
Based on this (well, and the rest of Solomon's work), I'd be happy to never read either of them for the rest of my life. Doubly gross.
Match to Vidal! Thanks for pointing this one out too --- I skipped over it in the print edition. I'd steal it too, but I guess I've stolen enough from you today. (Best answer: "Chased by whom?")
Couldn't resist and posted it on child_lit, off topic though it may be. (Actually, maybe not. No doubt, like everyone else, he too has a children's book in the works.)
