Made My ________

While waiting to see Polar Express yesterday, I went to Borders for the Times and scored the last copy of the book I've been waiting for, Antonio D'Ambrosio's collection Let Fury Have the Hour: The Punk Rock Politics of Joe Strummer. I then read my piece twice before the movie started and was more pleased than usual with the finished product, despite a couple minor editorial miscues. I've been getting annoyed at my prose style of late, but it works well in this context. The best part, though, is the back cover:

It can't get much better than that, from my perspective. I'm honored in the extreme. The book's editor -- not to mention author of several of its pieces -- was incredibly nice to work with throughout. This, however, is the orange-rind flavored icing on my favorite orange cake.
