Mary and I went to Mass and to lunch, stopped at Borders and bought a couple of books (mine is a murder mystery set in Chicago during the Columbian Exposition of 1893; it's written by a graduate of the aforementioned Northwestern University, and is dedicated to his high school English teacher, who, as it so happens, lived at Chase Avenue and Sheridan Road in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago where I grew up. I can't for the life of me recall the name of the book or the author right now. The book is downstairs and I'm trying to get this finished) and spent a couple of hours at Starbucks. That's become a ritual at the Holton house for Sunday afternoons.
I spend the week sitting in class, with time off to chase down database and application problems and to arrange my trip for next week.
Time for the Sunday funnies:
Today's Day By Day cartoon covers a topic near and dear to my and summerlady's heart. The Sunday extra is a good one, too. Winger is also good, and raises an interesting question.
EDIT: The author is Robert W. Walker and the book is City for Ransom, the first book in the Alastair Ransom series. I think a lot of you would like it.
