Laker embarrassment and some good reading

Let’s hope last night’s Laker wipe-out by the Houston Rockets was caused by Kobe Bryant’s sore throat, but it sure looked like a more serious problem than that. Anyway, the less said about that, the better. Wait ’til Wednesday! (David Thomson stop grinning.)

Meanwhile, on a more serious matter (what’s sports, after all?… a distraction), check out my review of my colleague Andrew Klavan’s new book in the Washington Times. It’d be a good Fourth of July present (or whatever) for the high school student in your family/circle.
