Bad News for People Who Like Bad News.

Hurrah for the Montreal Canadiens and their excellent back-up goalie Yann Danis!

Hurrah for Harold Pinter, the first Nobel Prize for Literature winner whose plays I was already familiar with and whose collected works sit on my shelves! Thirty-six years after his buddy Beckett won, Pinter collects his own Swedish delight. Well-deserved, though I can't help but feel that, given the Nobel committee's recent penchant for tweaking the noses of the American and British governments, this might have more to do with Pinter's recent anti-war activism than his long-standing penchant for pauses.
