I like art, coffee, education, feminism, food, literature, music, pets, politics, science, TV, and travel

occasionally, I try to write.



"Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they’ll make your soul impervious to the world’s soft decay."

Tomorrow’s cover, today: Israel is winning the battle in Gaza, but it is losing the war for world opinion and long-term security. Public opinion in Europe and emerging countries is hostile to Israel and even in America only a quarter of young people support it. As our cover leader argues, that matters, not just because Israel is an open trading nation that depends on America for its security, but also because some of the foreign criticism—especially on its current approach to peace negotiations—is right.

both articles are really, really good and interesting!

Next on the summer reading list—more Kerouac!


So a guy walks into a bar one day and he can’t believe his eyes. There, in the corner, there’s this one-foot-tall man, in a little tuxedo, playing a tiny grand piano.
So the guy asks the bartender, “Where’d he come from?”
And the bartender’s, like, “There’s a genie in the men’s room who grants wishes.”
So the guy runs into the men’s room and, sure enough, there’s this genie. And the genie’s, like, “Your wish is my command.” So the guy’s, like, “O.K., I wish for world peace.” And there’s this big cloud of smoke—and then the room fills up with geese.
So the guy walks out of the men’s room and he’s, like, “Hey, bartender, I think your genie might be hard of hearing.”
And the bartender’s, like, “No kidding. You think I wished for a twelve-inch pianist?”
So the guy processes this. And he’s, like, “Does that mean you wished for a twelve-inch penis?”
And the bartender’s, like, “Yeah. Why, what did you wish for?”
And the guy’s, like, “World peace.”
So the bartender is understandably ashamed.

I’m in love for the first time
Don’t you know it’s gonna last
It’s a love that lasts forever
It’s a love that had no past

Don’t Let Me Down, The Beatles
