My local writers' group starts up again this coming Saturday after a summer hiatus. I tried to interest someone else to take over the presidency, but apparently the perks are insufficient to stoke anyone's ambition. In other words, the job is mine for another year. So the first task is to publish the pre-meeting newsletter to tell members about our guest John Duncklee and get them all to show up.
Now that I'm back from Santa Fe, I also have to finish up a draft of a book review for The Internet Review of Books. It'll cover a pair of books on physics written for the intelligent lay person. Both were a challenge to read, perhaps the sort a person of my modest intellect should either read twice or not at all. The reviews themselves won't be as hard to write as I'd first thought, though.
In the living room, my son is watching The Simpsons on Fox, a network that doesn't get much airtime in our house. Maybe I can get Homer Simpson to help me with my review about black holes and conversion of matter into energy.
