Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde

In this week's capsule: preparing to interview poet Marie Howe, reflections from a Benedictine monastery in the Midwest, and some illumination from Pema Chodron.

As the glitz of the Emmys starts to fade, and the cast of 30 Rock laugh and smile all the way back to New York with their third consecutive Best Comedy Series award, I am reminded of our pal Oscar Wilde. The writers for 30 Rock and the late playwright are all masters of wise-cracking, snappy writing and to us impart their brand of wisdom (usually backhanded).
