  1. Roger Sutton says:

    >Actually, I could write an editorial about Georgie Boy–in his terrific new movie Michael Clayton, the Clooney character ignores–at his peril, it turns out–a book that his young son has been urging him to read. Read with your kids!

  2. >Thank you for playing matchmaker. I still can’t believe my good fortune.

    Oh, and if you’d like another essay from me, I can write one about Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.
