have lapsed a bit on "The Huffington Post," but i dreamt up a new post last night, on the concept of nastiness in Flannery O'Connor and Robert Altman.
also, the William T. Vollmann/"Denny Lo Quiche" mystery has been solved... what he said was "Danilo Kis"! check out the Vollmann interview here (scroll to the bottom). thx to Laal for the link and to DFSBP readers Dave and Peter for their efforts in helping me crack the code. (background here for those who have no idea what i'm talking about.)
