Just so you don't think I'm all weight loss and puppy dogs and knitting all the time, here's a little something to make the scholarly part of you smile. Believe it or not, I have read Plato's Republic. I KNOW, right?? And I'm a hy-uge fan of McSweeney's. For the uninitiated, they're a literary journal specializing in... left of center. They're based in San Francisco and I think they're fabulous.

ANYwho. What does Plato have to do with McSweeney's, you ask? Well, BEHOLD! Plato's Allegory of the Cave, as Explained by Popeye to Bluto.

And if you're STILL lost, check out the Wikipedia version.

Maggie, That's some deep thinking you are doing there. What is your interpretation of the allegory?
