Happy Birthday, Jon.

Here's a song to brighten your day. It's "Pilot," by Garrison Keillor, a song celebrating last week's plane landing in the Hudson. I originally found it as a podcast on A Prairie Home Companion's News from Lake Wobegon on iTunes, but you can google it and find it in many places, such as here:

Enjoy the day!

I'm going to say "happy birthday" as well. I don't know Jon personally, but the column is one of my favorites in Genii. When I started reading Genii a couple of years ago after a decades-long hiatus from magic, I kind of resented that the column was two pages of material that wasn't always directly magic-related. Now, it's one of the things in the magazine I enjoy the most. Jon's got a great eye for interesting cultural material and his various thoughts and recommendations always resonate on a deep level. He's introduced me to writers I wouldn't know otherwise, and I even discovered one person through his column I subsequently hired to write something for a publication I edit, which means that now I feel okay about deducting Genii from my taxes. Again, happy birthday!
