This is my shortest post ever. Attention spans are only so long. Although laconic in speech, I become loquacious in print. But I am going to do something I have never done before: I will recommend a 4,000 word read. Salman Rushdie wrote this in the New York Times a week ago. Yes, the same dude Ayatollah Khomeini decreed an unsuccessful fatwah upon about 30 years ago, and the author of The Satanic Verses. His NYT opinion piece is all about what makes fiction interesting, and although imaginary, more capable of speaking of fundamental truths.
Don’t worry: The Times allows everyone ten free views per month. If you’ve burned your views, not to worry: a new month begins Tuesday.
