No bike news today – RIP Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I don’t know which makes me more sad – that he is dead, or that I actually didn’t know he was still alive and was caught by surprise by the news.

I’ll pour out a Pisco sour for him (well, pour out a smidge, anyway, that stuff’s too good to waste). And maybe resolve to actually sit down and read a book again. Man, kids hurt your reading time bad…

For those folks who couldn’t manage 100 years of Solitude and gave up on him – try Love in the Time of Cholera. The first 20 or 30 pages are dense but if you manage that introduction you’ll be laughing/crying your ass off.
