This is the week I answer my post-vacation mail–I promise. Really. Last week I had to write and write and write, but this week I only have to write and write, so be patient and watch your mailbox for further details. In the meantime, welcome back to “About Last Night,” the 24/5 arts blog. I took yesterday off and planned not to write a lot today, but as usual the bit got caught between my teeth, so here are today’s topics, from peculiar to commonplace: (1) Will the real Harvey Pekar please fess up? (2) Another round of “In the Bag,” with a tip of the hat to my fellow baggers. (3) A date which will not live in infamy. (4) The latest almanac entry.
For those of you who were gone last week (and I know some of you were, lucky stiffs), much of what appeared on “About Last Night” during your absence is still visible–just keep scrolling down. If you’ve been gone longer than that, jump over to the top of the right-hand column and click on the archives link and you can browse and sluice at your leisure.
More tomorrow, as always, but in the meantime, let’s get that site meter bouncing, O.K.? Tell all your friends about www.terryteachout.com, one at a time or en masse–the choice is yours.
