When the going gets tough, the tough turn to PG Wodehouse - well, at least I do. There has been so much bad and discouraging news lately that I am getting fatigued. A constant read of news and blogs - where I get a great deal of news - is draining. I enjoy P.G. Wodehouse and his Jeeves and Wooster characters. Wodehouse's writing is hilarious and clever. It is the perfect antidote for the ills of the market and the news cycle. Reading a Jeeves and Wooster story improves my mood and is good for several real laughs. When markets start crashing Bertie Wooster's antics are an enjoyable escape, and mentally restorative. I try to keep a collection of Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster stories within reach of my nightstand.
