Diana Davis ’07 is a recent addition to our Eph Blogroll. [EphBlog Blogroll? — ed. It’s too early in the morning for this . . .] Her site, entitled “Diana’s Blog Which is not a blog and is therefore an antiblog”, is, nevertheless, quite fun. She is

currently reading the Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle, specifically chapters eight and nine, which concern friendship. I was reading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, in which she constructs her idea of the “perfect man” (philosophically speaking). This man, Howard Roark, seems to be completely self-sufficient, so I wondered: are people supposed to be so self-sufficient, or do people essentially need other people?

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I certainly need my EphWife. I am not sure where Diana is getting her reading list from, but better Atlas Shrugged than The Fountainhead. And, for lazy summer reading, better Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance . . .

Diana also has lots of fun material at her website. Longtime readers will recall that Diana has appeared in EphBlog before. Her latest literary effort is an Ode to Williams Women’s Novice Crew.
