    Isn't it the official birthday of that little arts & culture rag out of NY? You know the one. The New Yorkite? The New Yorkian? Well anyway, I hear they have witty cartoons...

    Actually, that title story of the Munro book, is also being made into a movie. Though it may be a few months behind this one. The story was bought by Julianne Moore and the script is being written by one of my favorite ex-Portlanders, Mark Jude Poirier (whose last two books were sorely underappreciated).
