Cidu Bill on Oct 20th 2013

Twenty-three people sent me this one Thursday and Friday. Twenty-three people. I think the previous record for any single comic was ten.

Metatext: “I asked a few friends whether they’d had this happen, then looked up the popularity of their initials/names over time. Based on those numbers, it looks like there must be at least 750,000 people in the US alone who think ‘Sure, that’s probably my email address’ on a regular basis.”

Some people went back to a related March 25 post and commented there; so instead of making this a new post, I just brought up and re-named the older one.

Stories I Don’t Understand (astoundingly off-topic)

Cidu Bill on Oct 18th 2013

I read Bartleby, the Scrivner more than 40 years ago, because I had no choice. I had no idea what the point of the thing was, and I preferred not to think of the story since.

Then a few weeks ago, at the start of the govermnet shutdown, my son posted on Facebook “U.S. Congress: a modern day Bartleby the Scrivener,” which inspired me to read the story again. Surely, with additional decades of life experience, I’d be able to suss out why it’s considered an important example of American literature.

Nope.

So maybe somebody can briefly explain it to me. As with many of the comics here, we’re not looking for what’s actually happening — the plot is certainly straightforward enough — but why any of this matters, and why a century and a half later we think of Melville as having written three stories.

And a side note: I just found out that Moby Dick has been made into an opera.
