Finally, a political candidate I can get behind


When he is not absorbed in his path to overthrow and destroy the nation of Japan, he works as a musician playing songs for tips on the side of the street.

New Atul Gawande book

Yay! One of my favorite writers has a new book out. Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance comes out this week and is now on its way to me from Amazon. He's also the subject of a NYT article today.

Gawande's first book, Complications, is one of my favorites of all time. Everyone I've recommended it to has loved it. He's a brilliant surgeon and a beautiful writer. Can't wait to read the new one.

Must have been the angel!

Is this a bad omen?
