If it hadn’t happened to me, I don’t think I would have believed it. It seemed like a caricature that SNL or even Rush Limbaugh might invent. It was almost funny at the time, but upon further reflection isn’t funny in the least. It’s pretty scary actually.
I attended the annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books once again over the week-end. As always, it was engaging and interesting. I learned some more about ideas and authors I wanted to learn more about and discovered some new ones too. But one bizarre experience (sadly) takes the cake.
