Sat night miscellany

How does Nancy Pelosi sleep? I am not talking about a bad conscience; she is a politician and presumed bereft of conscience until we see evidence otherwise. I am talking about the mechanics of closing her eyes. She has had the ol' face tightened up so many times that her eyebrows rest about three inches above her eyes, and she looks constantly surprised. Or how can she sneeze, for that matter?
The Guardian of the UK published a list of a columnist's picks for the best books about journeys in South America (really Latin America, as they include Mexico). Read it here. Don't understand how the guy gets in Love in the Time of Cholera, a novel, but rejects other novels.
