This morning I saw a young woman completely engrossed (and I mean she never looked up to evaluate the normal morning Muni commute tomfoolery) in the book “Midwives” by Chris Bohjalian. According to the internet version of the front flap, it chronicles the life of a…wait for it….midwife who eventually gets put on trial when one of her deliveries does not go as planned. Apparently the case became less about this particular midwife and more about putting the entire livelihood/practice on trial.
Interesting choice young lady who-shall-not-be distracted.
And don’t forget that today is the kick off for Litquake! Holy Crap! Tom Waits will be at their October 2 event.
