Don't worry I'm not made of glass
But baby you could have shown some class



Cara Ober, Seagulls, 2008

* From Harper's August 2009:

-- Chance that a U.S. home purchase in the first quarter of this year was of a foreclosed or short-sale property: 1 in 2

-- Percentage change between winter 2008 and winter 2009 in the amount of delinquent U.S. credit-card debt: +63

-- Percentage change in the number of credit-card offers Americans have received: -67

-- Estimated weekly revenue from heroin sales that two Pennsylvania senior citizens were making before their April arrest: $10,000

-- Estimated percentage of all existing blogs that have not been updated in four months: 94

-- Chances that a Twitter user accesses the service only while at work: 2 in 3

* Who knew: superstar DIY musician R. Stevie Moore has a sister who was Miss Tennessee in 1977, and who currently is part of a Las Vegas Lounge duo. The question is: Why did she drop an 'O' from her last name?

-- if you are unfamiliar with R. Stevie Moore, check him out immediately. A good starting point would be his 1977 album "The North." Additionally, there are lots of videos on utube.

* "I had no idea...of how it would feel. The heartbreak, I mean. The shattering of trust, the brutal sense of loss and sudden awareness of my heart's true vulnerability, like a tree branch snapping off in an ice storm. I had no idea about that." -- Margaret Sartor from her story in Love is a Four Letter Word (the stories by D.E. Rasso, Jami Attenbergand Maud Newton are worth seeking out and reading in the bookstore if purchasing the book is out of the question).
