The Problem with My Dad's Kindle

My father owns a Kindle.

 

It's not actually his fault.

With Ken Saville in the High Lonesome

CABEZON ROAD--"There are two kinds of people in this world," he said.  I looked at him as he leaned backwards in his chair.  It was 1967 and I was visiting someone I barely knew on his houseboat in Sausalito.  A real Paul Klee hung on the wall behind him.  Still, I doubted he would say anything…
