My second son was born on 10/16. The morning of the day my wife went into labor, I finished reading the Inferno. I really enjoyed re-reading the poem and I’m going to post an essay on it when I can. Whether I get to essays on the remainder of the Comedy remains to be seen. I’ve got two books to peddle now, and a third in the works. It seems to be the fate of this blog that it can only be sporadic. But I can’t quite bring myself to renounce it entirely.
