“I want to go back to Toledo, where people are nice. I always wanted to live in California but now that I’ve seen it, it’s a hellish place.”
That’s a purportedly homesick character in The Way Some People Die (1951) by Ross MacDonald, and it’s today’s get-the-week-started-off-on-the-right-foot quote. But wait, there’s more! Here’s a Aug. 1 bonus: a link to Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach singing their duet, “Toledo.” Thank God It’s Monday!
