    I would nix the standing martingale idea for the reasons stated. But a running martingale can be your friend. It does nothing unless you need it, so the horse does not feel restricted. But...

    I think that the title of the article is misleading, since the author spends most of the time talking about why she loves Infinite Jest. I agree that often the greater the difficulty, often the...

    But I'm not sure that what you are saying detracts from the author's point. She was very much working poor--even though she was white, well educated and from a middle class family--she left home at...
