I’m running for reelection. We have everything you would want in a campaign, except an opponent. Robert F. Kennedy said, “About twenty percent of the people are opposed to everything all of the time,” but I still picked up more than 96% of the vote in the primary.

The kick-off party featured musical guest stars Molly Ringwald, Peter Buck of R.E.M., and local greats The Beatniks. You can see pictures at www.marklindquist.org. I also posted some on my semi-new Facebook page.

Meanwhile, I’ve updated this site with more book reviews, including one of my favorite non-fiction books of the year, Walter Kirn’s Blood Will Out, and James Ellroy’s new crime fiction, Perfidia.

Thanks for reading.
