Lucky Surprise Links::

- Pearls Before Breakfast, by Gene Weingarten :: I believe someone in the group originally sent me the link to this amazing story. And now it's won a Pulitzer! "A distinguished example of feature writing giving prime consideration to quality of writing, originality and concision, in print or in print and online, ten thousand dollars ($10,000) awarded to Gene Weingarten of The Washington Post for his chronicling of a world-class violinist who, as an experiment, played beautiful music in a subway station filled with unheeding commuters." (He used to be the editor of Tropic Magazine, the Miami Herald's former treat.) Nice bit of writing.
Classics Klatch :: For December 4th: Cervantes' Don Quixote. Try the Edith Grossman translation... she does the Gabriel Garcia Marquez books.
