Ghostrider has the Ball

In preparation for your January presentations, please select a text (which need not be text) that will yield weighty Knowledge Questions (formerly known as Knowledge Issues). Before A period Monday morning, please post a link to your text as a comment.  In your hunt, remember your three closest allies (all found to the right): 3quarksdaily, RadioLab, and Arts and Letters Daily.

In the meantime, enjoy this serendipitous article from the Paris Review (via Old Faithful) with special appreciation for Ralph Ellison's contribution to our discussion of the symbolic nature of language.
