September 19, 2003 | Harold Bloom, Harold Bloom is a professor at Yale, a literary critic and author of "The Western Canon," (Riverhead Books, 1995).
The decision to give the National Book Foundation's annual award for "distinguished contribution" to Stephen King is extraordinary, another low in the shocking process of dumbing down our cultural life. I've described King in the past as a writer of penny dreadfuls, but perhaps even that is too kind. He shares nothing with Edgar Allan Poe. What he is is an immensely inadequate writer, on a sentence-by-sentence, paragraph-by-paragraph, book-by-book basis.

Blockbuster board games are unusual, but Days of Wonder has one in its Ticket to Ride. The already-classic cardboard game, in which players strategize over how to build the best railway routes, was released in 2004 and has worldwide sales of "several hundred thousand units per year," said Eric Hautemont, co-founder of the Los Altos, Calif., game company. That places it in the forefront of a blossoming independent game world, in which new titles such as monster bonanza King of Tokyo and kingdom-building game Dominion are fighting to join traditional classics such as Monopoly and Sorry.

My friend Harry Seymour telephoned the other day from Bakersfield. He was driving down from Oakland for a visit and wanted to know how to get to our place. I said, "Simple. You take the 5 south to the 405 south to the 134 north or maybe it's the 101 north at that point and you . . . " "Wait a minute," he said. "How can I take the 405 south and then take the 101 or the 134 north? Won't I be going back in the same direction from whence I came?" I said, "Well, not exactly.

* A film producer sends 10 copies of a script to 10 different directors, attaching notes to each one saying, "You're my first choice." An ethical lapse? Ten little white lies? Or business as usual? * A major studio agrees to a star's salary demand, but insists on paying some of it "on the side" so the true amount won't be used by agents of other actors as leverage in future negotiations. Deceit? Or just a savvy competitive dodge?

To Janis and Harry Kerker: You are right on in your choices and your judgment. It seems inane to me for a couple to have children, then farm them out to be nurtured by (1) a person who sometimes does not speak the family language, (2) a person with a below-standard education, (3) a person who does not possess the family's goals, objectives and approach to life. I could say a lot on the subject of raising children--because my three are grown college graduates.
