Another example of Ogden Nash as personal muse and touchstone. ON brings out the better angels of our nature, as Lincoln said in his inaugural address. Even when stolen. While "Listen..." led Olivia the Geek to commit a crime of passion as a teenager, she has confessed and surely is forgiven.
Less forgivable is the act of philistines in unmarked vans stealing ancient rocks from the stone walls in Ogden Nash's former summer town of North Hampton, NH.
