Welcome to the feature that is usually entitled "James Whorton, Jr.'s C-Spandemonium!" When Mr. Whorton is unavailable, we call it plain old "C-Spandemonium." So, I was over at Square Books today when I heard that Off Square Books (their sister store, right down the block) was to be the host, this very eve, of a "C-Span" event. I had a class tonight, and missed my chance to be one of the drowsing, crossed-armed old cranks that I so adore viewing in a C-Span audience. Perhaps it's better this way. The mysteries of C-Span remain intact. In other literary news, McNeil and I have been discussing various typographical fonts lately - nothing worth "blogging" about, though it would make a great font-themed radio show on one of the satellite networks.
