Though Garrison Keillor's voice is soporific, I do enjoy some of the readings and quotes from authors.
From today's The Writer's Almanac:
It is the birthday of Miranda July, born 1974 Barre, Vermont, who said:
"We humans are here because nothing can be perfect. There always have to be some living things that are unsatisfied, itchy, trying too hard. If it was all just animals and rocks and lettuce, the gods wouldn't feel like they had enough to do."
As I finished Pa ul Theroux's short story "Losers Win", I thought of what I heard from The Writer's Almanac on the car radio at 10:30 this morning.
