CAAF: Afternoon coffee

• After yesterday, I was going to self-impose a moratorium on all mentions of James Wood until he either a) published his first review as a New Yorker staffer (on the topic of the latest deadly Philip Roth novel, I believe*), or b) stopped by the house for tea & buns, but this screed, written by The Rake, is too smart and provoking to skip.

• What is a cranberry morpheme? (Via Lindsayism.)

* I admire Roth's novels a lot, but the last few have me want to hire him a hooker.**
** I expect Wood will work with a different thesis.
*** I don't know why I'm using so many footnotes today either.
