On the Cuteness of Sharks.

In case my daughter doesn't hear it directly from me, putting a baseball cap on a Shark doesn't make it less a shark. 

I'm all about ecosystems and supporting and honoring the parts that all creatures play within them; i.e. I'm not telling people to kill sharks. But I am not ever going to trust one: even if it is adorable. If you do trust sharks and they never harm you: cool. Don't try to tell me how safe it is to swim with them, though. Because as soon as you start in on that garbage I am already picturing you as half a torso with dripping red flesh ribbons for legs, and then I have to start planning your funeral. 

There's not really any book news this week. So this is what you get.
