I deleted my post about pet peeves b/c Andy thought I was talking about him! I wasn't and I realize that what gets on my nerves isn't very important anyway.

SO - today I'm trying to finish up "Babbit" by Sinclair Lewis and I'm pleased to report that it's an enjoyable book. In some parts it is very funny.
Here's a quote that I particularly like:
"Men who made five thousand, year before last, and then thousand last year, were urging on nerve-yelping bodies and parched brains so that they might make twenty thousand this year; and the men who had broken down immediately after making their twenty thousand dollars were hustling to catch trains, to hustle through the vacations which the hustling doctors had ordered" (138).

How poignant!
