Hey! They sent me a copy of THE UTNE READER, the one with an excerpt from my Oxford American column. The excerpt is half as long as the original, very artfully cut by an Utne editor - a phrase here, a paragraph there - so that you won't know you're missing anything... and maybe you're not! Marge Simpson is
on the cover, which makes me happy. I haven't had time to read the issue, but as I was flipping through, my eye fell on a reference to this forgotten song of my troubled youth.
