Corrida

DebateTwo. Toreros circling the bull. Sorry, Candy. You didn’t go in for the kill. Obama a more triumphant matador. Romney on defense against the ring. It was neither elegant cape nor bloody gore. Left the spectators wanting a better show.

Hilary Mantel wins ManBooker again. It must be rigged. Her Wolf Hall earned its prize. Bring Up the Bodies, a continuation of Cromwell’s story, was sorely lacking. The choices were not great this year. We felt a little quake on the eve of today’s anniversary of the big one in SanFran 23 years ago. Weird.
