Don't Go There
9:45 AM --
We are pleased to call to your attention the newly published 101 Places NOT to See Before You Die by Catherine Price. The author sees her book as a needed corrective to all those books exhorting you to do 101 or 1,001 goddam things before you die. Who has the time or the wherewithal? So she offers a few you can scratch off your list.
Highlights include the Testicle Festival in Missoula, Montana (slogan: "Have a Ball"), the Tap Water Museum in Beijing (where the city water, she notes, is "still unsafe to drink"), and Nevada.
Ms. Price welcomes your own contributions, as does the undersigned Monkey.
High on my list of things to avoid? The Bucket List. Don't go there.
— Larry, Attack Monkey, Light Reading
