Someone posted to the comments section that Marc Maron will be making some kind of announcment on Wednesday about his future at Air America. Over on his blog, someone made a comment that Randi Rhodes just made a hint that maybe they are changing the morning line-up again. Could it be good news this time?
Meanwhile, I must return to Jean Valjean's flight from Javert.* If you have an opinion about the many translations of Les Miserables, post a comment here. I am reading Norman Denny's translation, which Hugo biographer, Graham Robb referred to as "swiss cheese." I started with Charles Wilbour's five years ago and found it less than artful. I haven't tried the others. I wrote my own Amazon review of Denny's translation, which I am enjoying. He got some props on the back from A.S. Byatt as "inventive, witty, sly, innovatory" and he's somehow associated with the NYRB, which despite their occasionally conservative commentary, know their literature.
* this is indeed related to my own book. It's one of my mandatory to-read books, and did you know that Huey P. Newton read Les Miserables THREE TIMES in highschool?
