Fifty Words or Less// The New Yorker.

The January 11, 2009 New Yorker, in 50 of my words, 13 of their words:

Some people in Chicago were wrong about most everything; indeed, everyone wants everything but nobody fully understands Shakespeare; we won’t know anything about Justice Sotomayor until we know something about her; art stopped existing after February 22, 1987; and fiction containing the phrase, “By the time the group assembles in the bar of  the mountain hotel.”

 

Ad: Big Love premieres on January 10.

Fifty Words or Less// The New Yorker.

The November 30, 2009 New Yorker, summarized in 35 words:
