My missus always chides me for sticking with books even if I'm not enjoying them. "Life is too short," she says. I'm liking the Ali bio, though.

This Pogues song hit home. I live within 3 square city blocks of a large brewery, an industrial bakery, a wastewater treatment plant, and the 2nd largest river in the USA. When all those aromas swirl together it reminds me of Dirty Old Town by The Pogues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am Brian D:

There are a lot of (lovely) Dirty Old Towns all over, @Dan.
