Safety Note

The audiobook of Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses, with its laconic descriptions, unclear-who's-speaking-at-first conversations and all-around elliptical nature, is maybe not the best thing to be listening to while driving at night after a filling pasta dinner.

And when you do pull over at a rest stop, try to remember to take your foot off the brake when you take that catnap. Otherwise, when you wake up, it might seem at first that you dozed off in motion, and you're careening headlong into a populated visitor center.

This might just startle you.

Just sayin'.
