Cartoon of bachelor marmots

Cartoon of the Week: Alone with One’s Thoughts. (Re: News article that bachelor marmots live longer.)






Sunday’s A Figure from the Common Lot: Passage (part one), Honoré has a trying train ride to Compiègne; under new pressures, he comes to doubt Broughton’s good will. In the first Inimical of the week, from “Turning the Corner”, Malcolm-Webb has a chance to learn the nature of the Peace League’s mission. The Folly continues, with Pale Knight’s eighth episode, “The Song of Trout”, wherein Virginia Keltenham’s assistant contemplates the weight of public duty. 
A new short story in the Tourmaline series, “Cadisk” debuted on Wednesday. Palma is in prison, close to the town of Cadisk, using her time to study the G.R.A.’s mechanisms. Thursday’s Inimical closed Chapter 3, with some studied conversation on a parallel theme, though it seems to be the plot of a screwball comedy. In Are You Haunted, Powell remembers the beginning of his breakdown, and meets Lettie. On Saturday, a new poem: “A Small Exchange”.
Photos on my posts usually have a link to related information, sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about clicking links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
