From my Goodreads friend Melanie I learned that there is a book called Barbie and the Three Musketeers.  (Athos, Porthos, and Ken?)  I figure Barbie and Anna Karenina and The Sound, The Fury, and Barbie will be out soon.

I decided to boycott Hobby Lobby, then realized I'd never been inside one, nor was likely to be.  It'd be like boycotting Michael's.

ISIS has declared a caliphate.  Richard Coeur de Lion has expressed his opposition.  A telegram was sent to Paladin in San Francisco, but that was just a typo.

My favorite moment of the draft -- the look on Zach LaVine's face when the UCLA guy heard he'd been drafted by the Timberwolves.

In other news, apparently Shia LaBeouf remains in custody because neither Optimus Prime nor Bumblebee would post his bail.

The George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will be in Chicago.  In other news, the Michael Bay School of Transformerative Grammar will be in Blue Screen, Iowa.

Michelle Wie frees the albatross from her neck with US Women's Open win (The Guardian)

O happy living things! no tongue
Their beauty might declare:
A spring of love gushed from my heart,
And I blessed them unaware:
Sure my kind saint took pity on me,
And I blessed them unaware.

The self-same moment I could pray;
And from my neck so free
The Albatross fell off, and sank
Like lead into the sea.

I know I'm relieved.

Dear Mr Eliot,
Would you like to come for dinner?

Dear Mr Epstein:
The population should be homogeneous; where two or more cultures exist in the same place they are likely either to be fiercely self-conscious or both to become adulterate. What is still more important is unity of religious background, and reasons of race and religion combine to make any large number of free-thinking Jews undesirable.

Dear Tommy,
No worries.  I expect I'll be the only free-thinking Jew in the house. Most of my friends are free-thinking Gentiles.  And dogs.  So we dodged that mortal peril.

Dear Mr Epstein:
You will have observed that the boffo musical based on my verse was not named "Dogs."  I do not care for dogs.  They are insufficiently introspective and do not affect a dissociated sensibility.  It is true that there  was a dog owner in Shakespeare, but although he was named Lancelot, he was not Lancelot Andrewes, and therefore he lacks resonance.

My name is William Butler Yeats. When young, I spoke to faeries and sang of ponds and leprechauns and lips red-ripe as cherries. Now my glass is cold and cracked, my verse a fine steel wire. The faeries all have been served w...

I was about to read this, but it's time for "Tombstone Territory," "Trackdown," and "Hotel de Paree."

Rebekah Brooks has been acquitted.  In announcing its verdict the jury explained that she looked just like Merida in Brave .

Ah, we're not sending combat troops.  We're only sending advisors to help prepare and assist our gallant allies in defending the homeland against the invaders.  Haven't I seen this show before?

Introduction
The correct Richard?  Observe the faultless tailoring of my 501s and the flawlessly untied Converse All-Stars.  Note the fountain pen ink stain on my shirt pocket.  How could I not be the correct Richard?
