Sunday Reading

There’s lots to peruse this morning away from the post-election analysis.

  • If escaping from reality into the cocoon-like comfort of a movie theatre sounds good, check out the New York Times’s compendium of the holiday films that are about to be unleashed on the public. I’m looking forward to see what they’ve done to one of my favorite flicks from 1965, The Flight of the Phoenix, and I am also awaiting Finding Neverland.
  • The Miami Herald has the lowdown on the South Florida International Auto Show, including a plug for Memory Lane, the exhibit of classic cars by the Antique Automobile Club of America South Florida Region.
  • Well, if you’re going to drive a new car, be sure you’re sober, of course. If you get a DUI in Ohio, the state can require you to have scarlet letter license plates.
  • And if you’d like to curl up with a good book or an entire series, for that matter, read Meghan O’Rourke’s profile in The New Yorker of Edward Stratemeyer, the father of such books as the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series. Gee wilikers!
  • Football picks: The Lions (4-3) play the Redskins (2-5), and the Dolphins (1-7) play the Cardinals (2-5). You do the math.
