    Nice. It's good to see that some people remember Goodis. That he is barely noticed by the mainstream speaks volumes about how horses are picked in this country.

    By the way, John Updike has died. RIP. It is ironic, perhaps fitting if such a thing exists, that his death happens just as the world he spent so much time describing is crumbling. I wonder if the next generation will not be better represented by Goodis, an ironic twist of fate, as the bad journalist said.
