Ken Alexander Needs a Vacation

On June 24, the Sunday Star published a list of Sizzling Reads as recommended by various “celebrity bookworms.” (Their words, not mine.)

Based on Ken Alexander’s response, I think he needs to take some time off, because overwork and the hot summer sun is taking its toll:

As I have been granted no leisure time; as the barbarians are permanently at the gate; as we have no air conditioning; as the world is spinning on an axis few can behold; and as the children feel entitled to their time, this summer, like all summers, I will escape to a park and sit under a tree’s canopy to read, contraband beer in a brown paper bag by my side.

Get some rest Ken. Apparently the future of the free world depends upon it.
