Happy Birthday

Libraries, schools and bookstores across the country today are celebrating Read Across America in honor of what would’ve been Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday.  The Lorax is being released in conjunction as a movie.  It’s my favorite of his books and this film strikes me as a corporate cash grab at low-hanging Truffula fruit.  Stephen Colbert put it best earlier this week, and in rhyme no less (starts at 1:10). 

A lot of other writers share a birthday on March 2, such as John Irving, Tom Wolfe and Peter Straub.  And mine is today as well, number twenty-seven.
