J.K. Stephen trivia: He was Virginia Woolf's cousin; he got bonked on the head and went mad, developing such a violent obsession with Virginia's half-sister Stella that he had to be banned from the house; he died raving in an insane asylum; he is often on the list of suspects as Jack the Ripper.

Fun facts for your Literary Fun Fact File. I keep mine in the place other people keep math skills.

"...grass is green, lakes damp, and mountains steep": I love Wordsworth, but I guess he has it coming. Very funny poem. (And as for Laura's comment---I wonder if JKS is the only poet on the Jack the Ripper short list?)

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
