Giving Up on 'Ulysses'

Commentator Scott Huler is going to stop trying to read Ulysses. He will do this tomorrow, June 16, which is known to some as "Bloomsday." It's the day in which all the action of James Joyce's novel transpires. Huler says literary snobs drink Guinness and read from the obscure and dense novel on Bloomsday, but he's giving up.
