key to uncle tom's cabin

I’m now comfortably situated at D’s place. I have two learned feline colleagues. Here’s the daily plan: coffee, trip to the park (nice mulch and dirt trail), 2 though possibly more laps, return, lunch, read Stowe and write until D gets home from work around 6:30. Simple and beautiful as that.

I’m currently reading Stowe’s Key to Uncle Tom’s Cabin. It’s a dossier on slavery, ostensibly to support her critique in UTC. Court records, newspaper excerpts, personal letters, various testimonials. It is a portmanteau book about the horrors of antebellum jurisprudence.

The full text is here.

I’d like to note the passing of David Foster Wallace. I enjoyed his work in The Atlantic and the excerpts Raccoon read at the dinner table. He will be missed.
