"The good turtle soup or merely the mock?"

On my mental jukebox today is "At Long Last Love." It just won't go away. Thank you, Cole Porter. Note to self: Don't forget that it's in the 18 September issue of the TLS that Martha Nussbaum's review of Nicola Lacey's book appears (Women, Crime, and Character: From Moll Flanders to Tess of the D'Urbervilles). It's not on line, but Nussbaum has very interesting things to say about Trollope, in particular. In this silver light, the monarch butterfly going from flower to flower on the lantana almost glows. The Navajos would call this a female rain.
