Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.

"It's worth revisiting. Just to ask, "Have I become so callow that I ignore what this book said?" "

"Hear, Hear. Loved "Cannery Row," loved "Sweet Thursday" which I took as a sequel. Steinbeck's love for his friend Ed Ricketts (who became "Doc") is really touching. Steinbeck's writing is so rich it's…"

"I read this in high school and thought it was lousy. Re-read it as a man and thought it was magnificent, and read the rest of Hemingway. Some stuff is just better reading for a mature man than a young one."

"Thank you :) I didn't know that about Paul Newman, either.  I knew vaguely that he was an actor, but I don't know whether I've ever even seen any of his films.  I had to wonder, "why would Paul Newman have any enemies…"

Lifestyles

Whenever I can after hearing persons talk about the "gay lifestyle," I share my take on the "straight lifestyle": When talking about the "straight lifestyle," who are you talking about, Hugh Hefner or the Waltons?  Both are straight, but they certainly have different lifestyles.Usually when I talk about acceptance of GLBTQ+ people I am not referring to the wild, outlandish persons that so often appear at events.  I'm usually referring to the ordinary people who live in a house with a dog and…See More
