Fats Waller...

...is really incredible. Over the weekend I picked up a bargain basement CD with something like 40 of his songs, and they're great fun, and rather suit my mood right now. I feel a bit adrift -- not sure what I want to read next, not sure what ideas I want to pursue at work, and fortunately not under any pressure to immediately decide.

So I exercise and listen to Fats Waller and study Bosnian vocabularies and practice magic tricks.

I also think of newspapers. Few things disturb me as much as the plight of papers (truth be told I couldn't care less for broadcast, with the exception of radio), and perhaps that's what my next project at work should be. After all, Daniel DeFoe, one of the first great journalists, was primarily a businessman.
