Quote of the Day (John Updike, on a Christmas Caroler)

"Surely one of the natural wonders of Tarbox was Mr. Burley at the Town Hall carol sing. How he would jubilate, how he would God-rest those merry gentlemen, how he would boom out when the male voices became Good King Wenceslas..."--John Updike, "The Carol Sing," from Christmas Stories (Everyman's Library), edited by Diana Secker Tesdell (2007)
