Happy Bloomsday! (and Ulysses is safe for iPad)
Happy Bloomsday, everyone! The Sheridan libraries of Johns Hopkins University will join the international celebration of James Joyce's "Ulysses" with readings Wednesday at -- where else? -- The James Joyce pub and restaurant in Harbor East.
The readings start at 5 p.m., though the pub will offer $4 glasses of James Joyce Amber all day. So lubricate your tongue -- and other bodily parts -- to help celebrate the convoluted classic that takes place in Dublin on June 16, 1904.
In other Ulysses news, Apple said Tuesday that it was mistaken in restricting iPad images for apps for Robert Berry's comic book edition, which contains nudity. The AP reported that the developers of that book and a graphic treatment of "The Importance of Being Earnest” had been allowed to use the original artwork.
