The Washington Post runs a great feature on Sundays, in the Style Section. But it has a stupid name.
It's called "Life is Short: Autobiography as Haiku." But the pieces it runs in this feature are not haikus. They are short biographical sketches.
Nonetheless, here's a great one. It fits in with my old Let's All be Merry and Gay post, and with Rachel's two most recent ones at A Comedienne's Sidekick.
