The title of this blog is an homage to Richard Brautigan, but if you're keeping score the literary references have been mostly to Tom Robbins. I don't know why.
Here's something for the Brautigan fans to look forward to: I may recruit someone to count the punctuation marks in this blog to date, then write a guest entry.
That, of course, is a reference to a chapter from "A Confederate General from Bug Sur" in which the narrator entertains himself by counting the punctuation marks in Ecclesiastes. That image has stayed with me for years.
