Just started reading The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaajte. He's such an elegant writer--a shame that they butchered his The English Patient with that movie.
I'm with you on this. Payed more attention this season and liked the development of guards and at the bigs. The Otto Porter question is what scares me, even with the Truth on board. Of course Randy Wittman is coach an Grunfeld the GM, but the two did nice work last year and this past off season.Sorry to hear about Paul George. Indiana is in free-fall right now
I just finished The Long Fall by Walter Mosley. One of his newest characters, Leonid McGill, based in NYC. It's an easy read and good fun.
Lauar Mvula, Little Girl Blue. I just found out about her this week. Eclectic, to say the least.
Wittman and Grunfeld need to go, in my opinion, but we're pretty much stuck with both of them after this playoffs. The Wizards are still a few players short of being truly competitive (back up PG, SG, SF), Gortat and Ariza may well get paid above their actual pay grade, and don't know what they have with Otto Porter. I like what Gooden, Miller, and Harrison bring off of the bench but they're a combined 90+ years old. But playoff basketball is back in DC and the Phone Booth...
Captain America: the Winter Soldier was entertaining. Bit the camera technique used for the fight scenes made for tough watching. It took the Bourne feel and made even more jittery. It felt like an etch-a-sketch
There was an Otto Porter sighting in DC! 2-4, 2 threes in 10 minutes. Too bad in came at the expense of the Wiz's game winning streak. Man, he's not looking like the kid who dominated the Big East last year. Too soon to tell, but this might be another draft bust for Ernie G.
Museums, Monuments, and National Parks: Toward a New Genealogy of Public History, by Denise Meringlo
Of the current players, I can't think of any beyond those mentioned that would truly scrap, save for Caron Butler and maybe Paul Pierce. But from the back in the day files, don't forget Xavier McDaniels or Vernon Maxwell.
I respect your support of your team, but they are as useless as tits on a boar. At least my Wizards have no illusions of being the center of the basketball universe. They suck and have for years, with brief moments of competency.
