There will be a pop quiz

Frankly, I don't care whether you like the NY Times or not. I do.

And I read it every day. Not for politics; they are too knee-jerk even for me. Instead, I read the Times for information that I just can't get anywhere else. At least not as good and not as well-written. Plus I think Maureen Dowd is one of the funniest writers since Dorothy Parker.

Which brings me to today's tout: you still have time to get to the bookstore and buy today's edition. If there's a Starbuck's nearby, you're set. They carry the Times.

What's the hubbub? There are two sections in today's Times that offer up timely, interesting info about two of the favorite topics for people on the shady side of 50.

If, however, you are facile enough to read newspapers online, click on the two highlighted topics: retirement and sleep.

Ha. You thought I was going to say sex.

Maureen Dowd is a good writer and on the flip side of fifty.

You don't have to give me a pop quiz, I know who my Pop was,and what's a Maureen Dowd??? Also I don't sleep well because I'm too poor to retire. Do I win a free book????

One of the first things I do is go to the NYT website. When they are not reporting on political matters, they are as good as any news outlet anywhere. My major criticism is that they pretend to be unbiased politically when they are not, and that carries over into what they cover, not just how they cover it. Have to do a little work today, but will read those two items when I get home.
