As you may have surmised, Professor Bierce adamantly resists one of the banes of the modern American academy, viz working on the weekend. My apologies to those of you who have visited this humble blog on Saturday or on the Lord's Day. The life of the mind requires, indeed demands, the nurturing of more bodily pleasures on those two days that serve as a hiatus to the tyranny of the other five.
Fortunately college towns these days are bountifully provisioned with shops that purvey the essential brain-starter of the week, the essential antidote to Blue Monday, the black Ichor of life. So here I sit, soon to sate your voyeuristic desires while I sate my need to for an essential infusion. Yrs, AHB.
