Today kicks off the Sequester. (Blech.) But it’s also the kick-off for NEA’s Read Across America Day. (Yay.) So if you’re feeling a little glum, sequester yourself at your local library and read a couple of whimsical Dr. Seuss books to your favorite littlest ones.
Or just read them to yourself. You’re never too old for the Whos down in Whoville. (Who, now that I think about it, were a pretty political group of characters with their bitter butter battles and their anti-commercialism at Christmas and their person’s-a-person-no-matter-how-small rhetoric. Holy Seussical! How did I miss all that?)
Um…I may need to sequester myself in the shower and think for awhile about children’s literature. (Have a Fun Friday, anyway.)
