To paraphrase an other cherished literary work that exists at several levels, All in all, I rather read about boats.

You mean Philly, you rather be reading books about boats in Philly? Although, that would be a good epitaph on your stone.

*Classics Illustrated that is. for those of you not old enough, they were comic book versions of classic literature.
Not only that but the Sunday comics had gorgeous picture stories from the romantic and biblical classics. Some bordered on what nowadays would be called pornographic. So prudish nowadays.
