War and Peace and a Kitten

Brick was excited because the new Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokonsky translation of War and Peace came out on Monday. They are a married couple who translate Russian classics into English. Their collaboration and their closeness results in especially accurate and poetic texts. This is Brick's new kitten seated atop War and Peace.

My brother, Moe, ran a marathon today. It was an unexpectedly hot October day in Chicago and when he got to about mile 22 the race was canceled.

He was understandably disappointed and was ordered to walk the rest of the race.
