Pre-Seder tidbits 

As reported around the 'sphere, the Pulitzer Prize winners have been announced, and Edward P. Jones' THE KNOWN WORLD is the winner for fiction. When was the last time a book took the honors for this and the National Book Critics Circle in the same year? Enquiring minds want to know....

Robert Birnbaum interviews George Pelecanos for the second time, what with HARD REVOLUTION in stores all over the place and racking up the critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.

Ed remembers Kurt Cobain on the tenth anniversary of his death. So too do a variety of folks writing for the Black Table, including Tom Perotta, Jonathan Ames, and Amanda Stern (last link from Maud.)

And finally, a couple of props to Roger Simon, who ingited a fascinating thread about intellectual property based on the fight Lawrence Lessig is having with Stephen Manes, and who offers up his own thoughts on Passover, and how, more than ever, it's a relevant holiday for Jews and non-Jews alike.

And except for one more post, I'm on my weekend blogging schedule till the Seders are finished. Happy Pesach, everybody!
