From Gerald R. Lucas

I spent this morning drinking coffee and porting some of Norman Mailer’s letters to Project Mailer: “‘A Series of Tragicomedies’: Mailer’s Letters on The Deer Park, 1954–55” edited by Mike Lennon. It was a lot of fun, actually. I’m so pleased how the MediaWiki platform renders academic articles; it’s really pretty perfect for this kind of work.

I’ve been working, too, on a logical and consistent category structure. I think I’m slowly figuring it out. Since Project Mailer has several distinct projects, I want to find a way that they all fit together yet still retain cohesion as projects. This, I’m sure, will take a bit of trial and error.

We watched Finding Dory tonight. It was good. A couple of times, Henry said “Poor Dory...” I think he was into it.
