You know what I love? I love opportunity to
wax eloquent about why these dry old tomes are relevant and valuable to all of us today.
I love to talk about what’s redeeming about the classics. Then I read Heart of Darkness. Yeah. Stay tuned for my list. A list of all that is noble and redeeming
and wonderful about Heart of Darkness: The author’s not around to write a sequel. Umm … It’s short. It’s printed on recycled paper. It’s not as painful as a root canal. Well
… it’s certainly cheaper. If you flip the pages really fast like this
… that’s kinda fun. All you have to do to look smart is carry
it around. THE HORROR! THE HORROR! Great pickup line. It has a pretty cover. Here … just stare
at this ’til the 60 seconds are up.
