Ok, Wait There’S One More

Another e-mail—I would have neverthought of this:

Since Talking Heads have come into it, I wonder if you know whether it’s The Smashing Pumpkins or just Smashing Pumpkins? It makes a much bigger difference than putting the article in front of National Review or Talking heads because, in this case, it’s the difference between pumpkins that one finds fabulous–”Smashing!”–or the physical act of smashing them against something.

Yes, I think a lot about such weighty matters.
