On The Vexed Posthumous Life of Oscar Wilde

Well-written. Interesting. I'm going to bring things down a notch. I was on one of those hop-on, hop-off tourist buses in Dublin. Me, a handful of Spanish speakers and an Asian couple. The driver was narrating. We drive past Wilde's birthplace. There's a park adjacent with a sculpture of Wilde reclining on some rocks.

"Around here," said the driver. "We call this 'The Fag on the Crag.'"

I found this amusing. My fellow travelers did not, as they could not understand what the driver said because they did not speak English.

Anyhow ...

@NotAndersonCooper It's the stork of bathroom accoutrements, the bath mat. A towel warmer presages a vasectomy.

@mathnet ... 45 seconds of "work" begets a lifetime of responsibility.
