Imagine a world where the economy is in total meltdown…oh, wait, we don’t have to imagine. The world’s economy is in total meltdown! Well, then imagine politicians who are so desperate to balance the books, they’re offering senior citizens a tax break if they commit suicide. Novelist Christopher Buckley did just that in Boomsday. Discuss your take on Buckley’s radical solution at today’s Fic at Nite book club. 7 p.m. Houston Public Library, Central, 500 McKinney. For information, call 832-393-1313 or visit Free.
